Door of Hope is helping lead the effort to bring God's healing from trauma resulting from abuse and neglect to people around the world, one person at a time.

Our Mission

Through God's power, Door of Hope equips people all over the world to live free from abuse and trauma through safe housing, educational conferences, support groups, trauma recovery counseling and prayer ministry.

Door of Hope is helping people heal.

For women, men and children, Door Of Hope offers Support Groups, Licensed Counseling, Inner Healing Prayer Ministry, Workshops and Conferences.  


The number of people asking for help has greatly increased in the past 3 years. In addition more than 1/3 of our participants cannot afford to pay our service fees. Our heart is to never turn anyone away due to an inability to pay. Your support is instrumental in helping us continue to provide full or partial scholarships for those who need help. Please help us provide for these dear ones who need Jesus' healing.  

In 2023 we have held 43 support groups with many of them being virtual. We now have participants coming to us from 9 different countries and 35 U.S. States and the area continues to expand. 

A recent support group participant said,”I've lost count of how many times I have wished to take my own life and how many times I've tried, but through Authentic Hope(support group), I found Jesus again.”

Update on West Virginia Prisons: The WV State prison system has requested our programs for their inmates including ten men’s facilities and one women’s facility. We were required to record the teaching on DVD. The DVD recording was accomplished in 2022 and is now available for use. The womens program is launched and  women have participated in our curriculum. The demand, those women waiting to participate, is great and funding is needed for it to continue. Launching the men's program will require even more funds. We also plan to expand in prisons throughout the US in the coming year as funds are available.

Update on International Groups: Door of Hope has always had a mission and heart to reach those who have suffered abuse but lack the resources to heal. The reality and need of resources is great in the U.S., but even greater in many countries abroad. For over a year we have hosted online groups for women in India and Nepal. In other nations, we have utilized resources such as our curriculum recorded on DVD. This DVD curriculum was sent to our mens group in Zimbabwe . Now these men can have access to Door of Hope leadership even with the limitation of inconsistent internet connection. Here is a link to a video testimony from Pastor Tino in Zimbabwe:

Founder of Door of Hope

Diane Stores, President

In 1991, Door of Hope Founder and Global Director, Diane Stores, lived with her husband and children on the west coast. For 23 years, she had endured abuse at the hands of her husband. Desperate for a way out, she secretly packed the kids into their car and escaped to Minnesota, where her parents lived.

 Diane arrived in Minnesota with an empty tank, $1 in her pocket, and "Help me!" in her heart.  God used those days to plant a seed in Diane's heart...

Once she became independent and strong enough spiritually and emotionally, Diane set out to help other women needing support. In 1998 she founded one of the first Christian domestic abuse shelters in the United States. And in 2012 she founded Door of Hope, with the vision to minister globally to those affected by abuse and trauma.

In the summer of 2016, God gave us a ministry center...

Since then, Door of Hope has served more than 4000 men, women, and families at the center through support groups, classes, counseling, and leadership training. We've also reached hundreds more through conferences and workshops.

We know Jesus is not done, though, as the Prince of Peace is directing us to expand so that He can answer the prayers of the woman in Mexico and India, the man in California, the young adult in England...

Today, Diane's family is a living testament to the healing God brings to generations when one person steps out in faith for their family.

Diane knows it firsthand, and we see it every day at Door of Hope: Together, through God's love and power, families can be transformed for generations, bringing His love and joy to the world.

Will You Help One More Family?   Thank you! Bless you!
