Young Professionals Council

The Young Professionals Council is a dynamic group of individuals united by a desire to increase the visibility, understanding and community support of The Doorways in the RVA community through fundraising and awareness events, including 'Splatter That Matters', A Paintball Tournament Benefiting The Doorways.

All proceeds from Young Professionals Council events are donated to The Doorways to support the cost of lodging our guests during their stay. Each member serves as an ambassador of The Doorways in the community,  provides volunteer and community outreach support, and are integral points of contact for The Doorways Staff and Board of Directors.


Our Mission

To support The Doorways through acts of generosity, hospitality and compassion and to develop additional resource streams through innovative fundraising and awareness initiatives.

Our Vision

The Young Professionals Council strives to make The Doorways a leading presence in Richmond, synonymous with hospitality and compassion during times of medical crisis.
