Project DOORS stands for Developing Our Own Rehabilitation Services. This has been a very effective program since its inception in 1985 when JIMHO began assisting in the development of new Drop-in Centers across the state of Michigan. Currently there are 57 non-profit organizations that are either totally consumer-run or in the development stages of becoming consumer-run. To the right you can see the various services that Project DOORS provides.

With over 26 years of experience, JIMHO Project DOORS continues to assist peer-run organizations with all aspects from the start-up process, basic maintenance of an ongoing organization, and development of support groups.  It is our goal to ensure that peers deliver the best quality service possible and ensure that peers are making all the decisions.  If there is something missing from this list at the right, we are always willing to assist an organization with locating the resources necessary to complete any task.  JIMHO Project DOORS is available Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:30pm for consultation regarding consumer-run programs or self-help support groups.
