Door to Hope Launches New Website to Help Highlight 10 Much-Needed Behavioral Health Programs

SALINAS, CA  — In 1971, Door to Hope opened its doors in Salinas as a residential treatment center for women struggling with alcohol and drug addiction.

A lot has changed over the decades. Today, the important nonprofit helps infants, children, teenagers, men, women and families — restoring hope, happiness and productivity in the process. And now, through a state-of-the-art, easy-to-navigate website, it can better communicate its message of hope by describing its 10 much-needed behavioral health programs to a wider audience.

The website at, also allows Door to Hope to better collaborate with agencies, and receive support from businesses, individuals and charitable organizations.

“The new website for Door to Hope is warm, welcoming and informative,” said Cheryl Johannes, Schipper Design, who built the site. “The different accents of blue reflect healing, sincerity, stability and expertise. It gives women, men, families and parents the resources they need to take the first step towards recovery and support. The website also presents the community with a way to get involved by donating to a cause that betters the lives of those in Monterey County.”

The website will also showcase Door to Hope’s unique outpatient program, the only one of its kind to accept Medi-Cal, private-pay and some insurance plans right now. Through this open-arms process, individuals are given a cost-effective way to begin recovery from addiction and substance abuse, while still living at home and continuing with work and daily activities. Door to Hope acts as their “door” to recovery, through a warm, caring staff and years of expertise and education in the field of behavioral health care and addiction treatment. The outpatient program helped more than 200 people in 2014, with expected growth to 400 in 2015.

Currently Door to Hope partners with First 5 Monterey County and United Way, but as with any nonprofit, it relies on donations from the community to help sustain its programs.

“Government agencies can only provide the residents of Monterey County so much aid,” said John DeMiranda, Door to Hope’s Associate Director. “We need the support from the community to fill in the gaps.”

Using the convenient “giving” button at, donors can make financial contributions of any amount — helping to change lives and strengthen their community in the process.
