Housing & Supportive Services

Runaway & Homeless Youth

The Door has long been a safe place for young people experiencing housing instability. Members have access to a wide range of basic needs (laundry, food, showers, clothing, hygiene supplies) and can connect with caring staff, both in-person and virtually, who support them in navigating immediate crisis needs and longer-term connection to resources and housing. Our two off-site supportive housing sites provide 24/7 staffing and resources for residents.
