Your Resource for Compassionate Education

Open Door Support was established as a resource for whole-life sexual health education for parents, caregivers, educators, and healthcare providers as they navigate questions, attitudes, and experiences surrounding sexual health for the children in their care. The mission is to offer compassionate education for our youth, through both classroom curriculum and resources that support the adults in their lives. 


Open Door Support works in the community through the classroom using California Healthy Youth Act approved curriculum, and also through parent workshops, one-on-one consulting, and customized training for teachers and healthcare professionals. We offer compassionate education using honest, medically-accurate, developmentally appropriate information and the skills to continue supporting youth, adolescents and families both at home and in school.
