The Library Programme serves all the children, teenagers and adults at the Open Door and is run by a group of dedicated volunteers.

The weekly programme is based on the interests and abilities of the members of each group and takes place in the friendly environment of our Library, by using the available books as well as modern technology.

A girl writes:

“How many wonderful people are found in books! Everyone is a new acquaintance!”


The Social Service organizes and implements the Summer Camps Program for the beneficiaries of the Open Door Centre, in cooperation with the Municipality of Athens.

The “Personal Assistant” programme assists Open Door beneficiaries and their families to choose their personal assistant for support and companionship on recreational and educational outings, creative activities at home, daily care and escort on vacation. The personal assistants submit their application to the Social Service of the Open Door Centre and, once they successfully complete the evaluation procedures, they are included in the Register of Personal Assistants and are supervised throughout the period of their cooperation with the family.
