Mission Statement

New Alternatives for LGBT Homeless Youth was created in October, 2008 by a group of volunteers and professionals with experience working with homeless LGBT youth in various shelter and transitional housing settings. The mission of the organization is to increase the self-sufficiency of homeless LGBT youth to enable them to "go beyond" the shelter system. We intend to do this by providing case management, community organizing, life skills groups, community-building recreational activities, and, in the long-term, supported employment opportunities. Our guiding principles are those of harm reduction, youth development, and empowerment

Description

New Alternatives provides a weekly sunday dinner and Life Skills group for up to 50 LGBT homeless youth. We also conduct a weekly case management clinic, and a variety of trips and recreational activities.
