Opening the Word, Inc. is a non-profit that exists solely on donations and grants.  We have no other source of income.  Though we work very hard to keep our costs down, we have to pay rent and utilities every month, along with the typical costs of running this kind of service.  None of our staff or Board Members are paid.  Any amount you can donate will be helpful, and 100% of your donation will be used to sustain the facility and the services we provide.


You may click below to donate or please make your check payable to Opening the Word Peer Recovery Center, Inc. and mail it to P.O. Box 536, Webster, MA 01570.  

If you have any additional questions, please call Rev. Janice Ford at 508-330-8073.
