Opening Doors Doing Service Fighting Against the O.D.D.S (Opening Doors Doing Service) is a nonprofit organization incorporated on November 4, 2010.
The idea of the organization was formed by the founder Troy Williamson. Since the start up there has been a formal introduction of the organization to the community and close friends and family of the founder. The foundation is 501(c)(3) organization.
Operating as usual
It's the fourth week of the year...
Get Our Youth Involved: Youth are exposed to the media, the internet, and easily available drugs and addictive substances. The old saying that prevention is better than cure applies to troubled youth and parents should swing into action the moment signs of trouble appear. Encouraging some type of consistent involvement, in which the adolescent shows a talent or general interest, is one way of keeping youth away from trouble.
It's the third Monday of the year and today we remember MLK. "Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a vital figure of the modern era and a pivotal figure in the Civil Rights Movement. His lectures and dialogues stirred the concern and sparked the conscience of a generation. His charismatic leadership inspired men and women, young and old, in this nation and around the world." Educate our youth and expose them to history!
It’s the second Monday of the year and this week is a PSA to address a growing problem among our teens. Sexting is a nation-wide problem that has resulted in happy well-adjusted kids withdrawing from school activities, lowered academic performance, depression and even su***de as they struggle to cope with the consequences of their poor decisions. The legal consequences of sending or forwarding this material can be dramatic: Arrest, fines, probation or even incarceration in the Department of Juvenile Justice. This problem will take the community to solve. Parents the first step starts at home with communication and careful supervision of the use of electronic devices. They are a privilege, not a right. Please help to keep our kids safe. Make it a great week and keep Fighting Against the Odds!
It's the first Monday of the new year. Write the vision...
The most successful Personal Vision Statements are inspiring, powerful and compelling. This statement should outline what you want to be, or how you want the world in which you operate in to be. It concentrates on the future. So write your vision and read/view it everyday!
