New Alternatives youth browsing the donated clothes

New Alternatives youth browsing the donated clothes. ┬áIn addition to clothes, we are looking for donations of crockpots – our stove is out of commission and we need crockpots so we can provide hot food for the youth. Update (1/8/2013): Thanks to your generosity, we’ve got so many crockpots that we keep blowing out the church’s electricity! Thank you so much to everyone who donated them!

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.
