The Doorway’s mission is making change possible by empowering people to take steps toward a sustainable future. Since 1988, The Doorway has provided an opportunity for young people (17-30 years old), who want to exit the streets, to build independent and sustainable lives in society through self-determination. The Doorway uses a two-year planning process called MyPlan to support young people’s self-determination in identifying and determining for themselves what they need to get off the streets. Through goal setting and speaking with volunteers, young people gain the knowledge to actively participate in the change they want to make in their lives. Recently, The Doorway expanded to include street outreach and in-reach to other youth-serving organizations in order to connect with more youth.
