Cooper House 20th Anniversary

May 19th, 2017

Supporters, board members (current and former), government officials, residents and staff all gathered on a clear spring day to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Cooper House, formerly known as the DOORWAYS Supportive Housing Facility.

Guests gathered for the program, refreshments, and cake decorated with the DOORWAYS logo under a gleaming white tent on the parking lot at Cooper House.

Board member Rev. Jeff Moore opened the program with a prayer.  Board Chair Jay Moore acted as Master of Ceremonies.  Special Assistant to the Mayor Martin Casas presented Opal M. Jones, DOORWAYS President and CEO, with a Proclamation from Mayor Lyda Krewson that declared May 17 as DOORWAYS Cooper House Day. The proclamation also acknowledged the agency’s 30-year history of providing housing and related support services to people whose lives are affected by HIV/AIDS.

Opal Jones concluded the remarks by thanking the audience for their support and reminded them of all the gains in treatment and medication. These improvements have dramatically changed how DOORWAYS provides its life-saving and life-altering programs.

Excited residents then proudly displayed their home for guests who wished to tour the 36 unit apartment building with 24 hour supportive nursing, recreational, and dining services. The program’s new fully accessible van was on display and the Giudici-Tinlin AIDS memorial garden was open in full bloom.
