Wear Santa's hat this holiday season for a homeless LGBT youth


Volunteers needed to be Santa for homeless LGBT Youth

 How it works:

1. Sign up to receive a personal letter written by a homeless LGBT youth requesting a gift (requests are limited to $100 or less)

2. Once you receive the letter, you’ll purchase the item and mail it or drop it off at New Alternatives before 12/22/13

3. Your young person will receive the gift at the New Alternatives holiday party on 12/23/13
(volunteers are needed to help with the party – contact Kate if you’d like to volunteer for the party itself)

 To Sign Up, Email kate@newalternativesnyc.org

Mission Statement

Created in 2008, the mission of New Alternatives is to increase the self-sufficiency of homeless LGBT youth and to enable them to transition out of the shelter system and into stable adult lives. We do this by providing case management, education services, life skills training, community-building recreational activities, opportunities for self-expression, and support services for HIV+ youth. Our guiding principles are those of harm reduction, youth development, and empowerment.
