The books were cooked. We as a church group wanted to donate paper goods and can goods and Fox told us he wanted cash only. Cash to put in his pocket. We no longer donated to this organization. The nerve of this man.

Ron Fox. Any relation to cross dresser Ken Fox?
I believe Ken went the whole nine & is now known as Kaye!!! In my opinion, when people resign it's because they want out before their wrong doing & corrupt behavoir are exposed!!! I smell a rat!!!

If I was homeless I would have been afraid to go there, cause that guy is gay.

That other gay guy on the radio on WHAM, talks alot about this place, maybe they got something going.

Thats strange because our church donated a lot of different things like coats,jackets, shirts, shoes, pants, socks, and canned goods, case lots of candy and crackers, cups and saucers and dinner plates and tableware and Rev Fox was very thankgul for everything we donated over the last 5 years. We even volunteerd to serve on the holidays too. He is one great guy! And Harry? You must be the devil to lie like that about Reverand Fox, we will pray for you this week at our services!
God bless you all.

This was not our experience. He wanted cash. When we told him it was the hard goods or nothing he finally gave in but did not want them. Said he had no need. Just needed cash. I wonder why? I tell the truth. Rodney Reynolds stop the cover up. I smelled a rat then and I smell one now.

I was once a resident in there new life program. They run a rehab program for those that don't have insurance. It was a safe environment filled with people who were genuine to the cause. Now the bad, Once you found out the inner workings and the fact they had almost 50 people on there Salary payroll you became disgusted. 80 percent of there Labor is done by new life program residents and volunteers. 99 Percent of there food they provide is donated and free along with they pay no tax on there buildings owned from the depression era. there RGE&E is supsidised as a tax right off. So you find out they really have no overhead. But the fox family reaps the benefits most CEO's could only dream of. Work maybe 1-3 hours a day free daycare fore kids, Work from home when you don't feel like coming in, Tax free Houses Free company cars and trucks used for personal use including hauling your fifth wheel trailer to your summer resort like Ron Fox does all on a company Gas Card. Brett Henry aka Husband of Candace Fox came in a few hours a day to go into a nice office and cook books to go home to his 250k home that him and his wife got from his supposed full time job from Open Door and her part time job there that no one ever saw her there!! That place did alot to help some people but in the end Helped the Fox family more than anyone, What a legacy.

Shame on these people for getting rich off the poor. And Shame on the Open door mission Board of Directors for not saying why they did what they did. Truth will come to light and those hiding in the shadows will be exposed yeah thats a Jesus quote maybe the next meal Open door mission serves to the poor and will only let them eat after a sermon they will tell them they were exploited.

Ok you sound half way smart and say open door doesn't ask for cash ever right? We will get back to that foolish statement in a few. If you were actually in the program you would never be allowed in accounting. Now to your foolish statement if you ever donate anything and leave a mailing address Open Door Mission sends you bulk letters asking For Checks, Cash, and or Credit Card to help feed the people that come to 210 west main street, even though they get all that food for free from Wegmans and other such organisations who write off 2x what they give and screw uncle sam in taxes.

By the way to the supposed resident that called me dumbest person on the planet? Tell me why Open Door doesn't have a Non Profit License anymore and had to file a DBA that's "DOING BUSINESS AS" Company and is now Open Door Mission Inc? Yep thats right. Here is there statement to the press, "The Open Door Mission, Inc. of Rochester, New York is a not-for-profit ministry, founded in prayer". There is a Giant difference between NON-Profit Organization's deemed by our government as tax free accountable charity's and what the Open Door Mission calls themselves as a not for profit ministry meaning Open Door mission can take in all the cash you give and no one knows what they do with it.

Some more facts for the smart guy that called me dumb. United Way stopped giving funds to Open Door Mission because Open Door couldn't show on there books they were giving out 80% of united way funds to the public. More facts Open Door mission held Public fund raisers for cash from 2001-2008 for a building they never retained But in those years sold 2 buildings that were donated to them.

I never said the Fox Family wasn't nice but here is a fact I can prove, the Board of Directors at Open Door Mission Inc. Fired Ron Fox, Sherry Fox, Judy Fox, and Brett Henry(brother in law of Ron Fox). They might be nice people but they must have done something very wrong to have christians fire the entire family employed there.
