It is the philosophy of Open Doors for the Developmentally Challenged, Inc. to be an active advocate for the rights of the individuals we serve.
It is the fundamental belief of this corporation that all people have the same rights regardless of their race, creed, religion, sex, national origin, age, and/or their disability.
