BHN supports the Open Door Club, a self-advocacy group for individuals with disabilities.

Weekly meetings are held every Monday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with a social gathering beginning at 6 p.m. at Florence Congregational Church, 130 Pine Street, Florence, MA. Meetings consist of educational programs to assist members to become more independent and self-reliant and include discussion of current events as well as individual rights and personal responsibilities; and social activities.

The Open Door Club is sponsored by the United Way of Hampshire County, and the MA Department of Developmental Services.
