BENEFITING: The Door - A Center of Alternatives, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Jun 30, 2014
Imagine what could be accomplished in New York City if every young person here had the opportunity to reach their full potential...
The Door’s mission is to help young people reach their full potential...It is a home-base and a family for kids who don't have anyone or anyplace to call their own. Since 1972, The Door has helped a diverse and rapidly growing population of runaway and homeless adolescents in New York City gain the tools they need to become successful, in school, work and in life.
Each year The Door serves more than 11,000 young people from all over New York City, with a wide range of services including reproductive health care and education, mental health counseling and crisis assistance, legal assistance, GED and ESOL classes, tutoring and homework help, college preparation services, career development, job training and placement, supportive housing, sports and recreational activities, arts, and nutritious meals - all for free, completely confidentially, and under one roof.
After 40 years, The Door continues to draw hundreds of New York City youth daily, and over 11,000 annually. These young people know that they can come here in crisis, and that they can count on continuing care, support, and encouragement. As an authentic model of constructive human relationships, The Door has won the loyalty and trust of many thousands of young people.
Let's make sure they have all the resources they need to do rescue these young people from a future without hope.
