About the Doorways: We believe in generosity. We believe in the simple truth that everyone needs help eventually. We believe that it's our joy in life to improve the lives of others. We believe in the human spirit, the stubborn oh-yes-I-will determination that trumps any get-well soon card. We believe in being there until we're not needed instead of leaving when we get tired. We are absolutely certain that we can love people we don't know. We regret that we have only one life to spend in the service of others. We believe life is meant to be shared. We refuse to turn anyone away. We are continually impressed by the people of Richmond. We think Southern hospitality is a universal life skill, not a regional curiosity. And when there's nothing more we can do, we'll do more. Give more. Love more. We are The Doorways. Between healing and home.
The Doorways provides lodging and support for patients and their loved ones who need to be close to the hospital but not far from the feeling of home.
