Door to Hope


We open the door to hope and offer a path to recovery for those who have mental health and substance use problems. We make the difference of a lifetime for children, youth, and families who have been exposed to trauma, violence, and alcohol and other drugs in the womb. We empower, support, and nurture all who walk through our door.

The Big Idea

For over 50 years, Door to Hope has sought to nurture, empower and support. The nonprofits help individuals, youth and families with mental health or substance abuse issues and in dealing with the trauma that comes from those. That happens through 10 programs that assist in sobriety and mental health stability, including their Women’s Residential Program, MCSTART (an intervention program for infants exposed to substance abuse) and the Santa Lucia young women’s residential program. Their aim is always to help find safety and sobriety for life through support and guidance.

I will be celebrating 39 years of sobriety in December. I got sober at Door to Hope. I am so grateful!!


We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
