Since 2015, Open for Service has been providing hope and a network for all people to find safe spaces to thrive and be supported.
So much has changed for the LGBTQ+ community since we began, and our organization has evolved with the needs as fast as we could. Now, we are finding that it is time for us to evolve in a new way that is beneficial with our mission and make the most efficient uses of our skills and resources.
Open for Service always opted to partner with other organizations for the greater good and share resources to help all. We have always used our funding to enhance our mission and grow our reach. Now, we find that we overlap with so many other great organizations and believe that it is better to support than lead. As such, we are going to stop operations and divert our community into a much bigger and better-funded organization. We can continue the good fight joining forces with these other organizations and bringing our knowledge and skills to help them grow more.
We are so thankful for your support. Thank you to Salesforce, the City of Indianapolis, the State of Indiana, our friends, families and each and every one of you for staying with us from day 1.
So please support our mission, by supporting this one – Open to All.
We love each and every one of you – and especially for who you are. Thank you for an amazing ride and we wish you nothing but hope, positivity, and success in the future.
