Mission

Our mission is to empower young people to reach their potential by providing comprehensive youth development services in a diverse and caring environment.

Activities

If you do not have a stable place to live or if you have run away from home, The Door can help you find essentials like food, clothing and shelter, as well as help with your specific needs. Sometimes all you want is a safe place to hang out for a while, a hot meal or a space to be yourself and meet other young people. You might need to see a doctor, talk to a lawyer, meet with a counselor or talk to someone who can help you finish your education and get a job. You can do all of these things and more at The Door.

The Door is a drop-in center serving New York City’s runaway and homeless youth with a variety of services, including:
Two daily meals, Monday through Friday 11:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. and Saturday 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Referrals to many NYC shelters
Center Space – a place to relax and participate in activities with other young people
Access to additional services including counseling, health and dental care, legal services, education and job training programs and creative arts activities

There are many reasons why youth may find themselves without a safe place to call home. It is important to remember: you are not alone. The Door is here to help, in many different ways.
