20 Years of Helping Homeless Youth
Now is the time for collaboration in the fight to solve youth homelessness.
Meet with Congresswoman Sarah Jacobs and County Supervisor Chair Nathan Fletcher along with Doors of Change staff and a former homeless youth at our FREE virtual symposium on youth homelessness.
Wednesday, June 9, 6-7 p.m. PST (on Zoom)
Hear from community leaders who are developing long-term solutions to the youth homelessness crisis. Our expert panel of policymakers and implementers represent federal, state, local, and grassroots efforts to end homelessness. They will sit down together to break down the silos and start collaborating to bring unified solutions to youth homelessness.
Since 2001, Doors of Change has helped over 2,200 homeless youth get off the streets and into safe housing. We have also helped countless others get the essential support they need to improve their lives. Our case management numbers have increased 40% since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the last twelve months, we’ve housed 83 youth, secured health insurance for 185 youth, and mental health services for 185 youth.
Requests for mental health support increased by a staggering 105% over the prior year. In 2021, our priority is helping our homeless youth survive the emotional struggle of the streets and we need partners in our mission of Getting Homeless Youth off the Streets.
We have a generous donor who is providing a $30,000 matching gift. If you become a sponsor today, we will be able to double your contribution!
