Brief History
The Open Door has served the Indiana County community since 1972. From its beginning as a United Ministry Volunteer Task Force offering crisis intervention services, The Open Door has grown to become a licensed counseling center with the mission to provide confidential, outpatient counseling and crisis intervention services to residents of Indiana County.
