Unlocking DOORS - Unlocking doors to reduce recidivism


Hands with hearts

The Unlocking DOORS Auxiliary

The role of the Auxiliary is to:

  • Raise awareness about the Unlocking DOORS Texas Reentry Network (Unlocking DOORS), a comprehensive statewide network of diversion, reentry and reintegration stakeholders, that is committed to reducing initial and repeat crime (recidivism) and the ever-escalating fiscal impact to the State of Texas through collaboration, partnership, education, training, public awareness and analytical reporting of evidence-based data; and
  • Identify client/offender needs and assist with securing funding to help enhance client/offender services and programs offered so as to assure that these individuals find a future of self-sufficiency that is crime-free.

The Unlocking DOORS Auxiliary will meet 3 to 4 times a year at fun gatherings, such as an annual membership drive (to be held in the spring); shopping spree fundraisers (throughout the year) at some of Dallas' most trendy boutiques and stores; as well as additional cultural outings. Proceeds from these events provide funding to enhance client/offender support and programming.

The Unlocking DOORS Auxiliary will assist annually with two major events each year - (1) the Annual Texas Reentry Symposium and (2) the Annual Public Awareness Event. Auxiliary Members work closely with the Unlocking DOORS Administrative staff and are involved in various roles, such as soliciting sponsorships and tickets, securing donations from vendors/patrons/businesses, and assisting with the event logistics.

The Unlocking DOORS Auxiliary is envisioned to be one in which members can give their time, talents, or resources - whichever is appropriate for their life at the time. For some, it may be a very minimum level of engagement, with more involvement around the Annual Reentry Symposium and Public Awareness events. Others may decide to take on a leadership role and give of their time and talents in various capacities throughout the year.

The annual Auxiliary membership fee is just $30.00, OR, for a one-time payment of $300, you can become a "Lifetime Member" (Note: All lifetime memberships paid through January 1, 2016, will forever be designated as a "Founding Lifetime Member".)
