Support Us

You can make a difference today in the life of a homeless youth.

A $20 donation provides one young person 10 hours of job counseling and training.

Two hours spent once a week volunteering in our school helps us meet the needs of over 350 students each year.

A $500 donation provides a week’s worth of meals in our drop in center which serves an average of 800 youth a year.

And a contribution of a new coat or gloves can make all the difference to a youth trying to stay warm on the streets.

New Avenues has demonstrated that it makes maximum use of its monetary support in addressing the needs of the homeless youth we serve.  You can be assured that your support is generating essential, significant, effective and measurable results in dealing with the challenges of homeless youth.  To find out more, read our cost benefit study.

New Avenues for Youth supporters—from local individuals and community organizations to area businesses and national foundations—inspire us to do more through their generous donations of time and money. Please join us in providing a path of hope and possibilities to homeless and at-risk young people.
