Letter from our CEO

50 Years
and Counting

Dear Friends,

I joined this remarkable organization in the summer of 2021 and have been impressed every day since by the dedication and thoughtfulness of our community of young people, staff, and supporters.

We began the fiscal year with high hopes for changes in society—particularly the emergence of vaccines that would allow us to put the COVID-19 pandemic behind us. Progress turned out to be slower than we all would have liked, forcing us to continue to operate with many pandemic-related precautions in place and keeping us further apart than we had hoped. However, despite this and other challenges, there were also many high points this year fueled by community input, joyful celebration, and profound connection.

When venues all over the world closed their doors, our health center fought to continue providing vital care for young people. Our heroic staff kept seeing patients, providing resources and information, and building a better future, one healthy young person at a time, including offering vaccines as soon as we were able.

When schools shut down, Broome Street Academy quickly shifted to remote learning, ensuring that disruptions to education were minimal. And BSA has worked hard to return to safe in-person instruction as much as possible, prioritizing the environment in which young people learn best.

Our supportive housing sites remained open 24/7; our legal team continued to represent undocumented minors; our arts programs hosted outdoor public performances; our food and nutrition program built a food pantry and provided hot meals; career and education staff continued to connect young people to jobs and internships and distributed technology to those who needed it most; and our clinical staff remained available to support the mental health of young people as they navigated the challenges of this year.

The Door continues to play a vital role in the lives of thousands of NYC youth. This is because of our deep commitment to listening, to adapting, and to evolving, and our phenomenal community of support—people like you. As we look back on all that The Door has accomplished over the past 50 years, since our establishment in 1972, it is impossible not to feel deeply proud. I hope you will join me in ensuring that the next 50 years are just as impactful.

In community,
Kelsey Louie
CEO, The Door

Listening to Our Members

Adapting to meet our community’s needs


At The Door, we take great care in welcoming new members to our community—and now young people can become members virtually! We are proud of the innovations we have made over the past two years that make us more accessible.

Text Line

When we can’t be together physically, we need ways to stay connected. The Door’s continuously expanding text line helps to ensure that our knowledgeable staff are never more than a text away.


The Door’s health center is dedicated to supporting the health and wellness of all our members. We are thrilled to be able to offer COVID-19 vaccines to both our staff and the young people who come to us for care.

Benefits Expansion

Ensuring that young people have access to vital documents and public benefits is more important now than ever. Our staff is dedicated to removing barriers to ensure that young people have access to the support they need.

Food Pantry Expansion

Supporting access to healthy food has always been a priority at The Door. Adapting to the needs of our community, we have created food pantries both at our SoHo and Bronx sites and continue to offer hot, delicious meals to go on Broome Street.


The Door’s counseling center has seen skyrocketing numbers of young people seeking mental health support along with significantly higher rates of continued engagement with care.

FY21 Program Spotlight

Youth Leadership Program

The Door’s Youth Leadership program has grown and flourished during this challenging time. With social interactions happening mostly online, young people have been able to engage more easily and in more targeted ways by joining workshops, connecting with one another, and designing programming. In 2021, we saw a record number of applicants for the program and the merging of the Adolescent Health Center’s Peer Educators with the agency-wide Youth Council. Together, this combined Youth Leadership program leverages more resources, shares information, and increases their impact.

Youth Leaders engage in a rigorous onboarding process, exploring topics including group facilitation, activism and social justice, budgeting, and event planning, and are connected to a wide range of personal supports to encourage them as they explore their interests, find and amplify their voices, and broaden their networks. This year’s Youth Leadership cohort has taken ownership over the design of our physical space, advocated tirelessly for themselves and their peers, spearheaded community events, facilitated town halls to increase youth voice and agency responsiveness, designed and led programming, welcomed and connected new members to The Door’s programs and resources, and built strong relationships.

Our Programs

It’s All Here

At The Door, we take pride in meeting young people where they are and adapting to the evolving needs of our community. Our integrated approach is unique and effective, putting our members front and center, right where they belong.



The Door’s on-site Federally Qualified Health Center provides comprehensive care, including primary care, mental health services, reproductive healthcare, vaccinations, and dental and eye care, all combined with health education.

This year, the phenomenal team in the Adolescent Health Center adopted tele-health technology, allowing for secure remote consultations, but also remained available in person for patients. When COVID-19 vaccines became available, they took the lead in promoting and providing them to eligible members of our community. They responded to the increased need for mental health support by enhancing psychiatric services, the community engagement team held virtual programming and events to stay connected to members, and they continued to innovate and adapt in response to patient feedback.

Community Engagement

FY21 Program Spotlight


Broome Street Academy (BSA) is a unique, tuition-free charter high school located within and operated in collaboration with The Door. BSA educates over 300 students annually through its rigorous academics, integrated opportunities for community connection, and comprehensive wraparound supports provided through our shared services model.

This year, BSA rose to the challenge of educating during a pandemic. Grounded in a strong belief that students deserve to be in school, staff worked tirelessly towards a return to safe in-person instruction, that included ensuring a fully vaccinated staff, adopting a comprehensive communication plan for parents and students, and utilizing online forums that increased caregiver engagement dramatically. But our staff also made school a place students wanted to be. We ramped up both curricular and extracurricular offerings, created a new student government, launched new courses in technology, and increased the number of Advanced Placement classes by 40%.

At BSA, COVID does not dominate the conversation – the focus remains on supporting students and encouraging creativity and academic success. We have seen an increase in the depth of our relationships with students. We are, in fact, more connected now than ever before. We have the muscle and resiliency to tackle this challenge – to both survive and thrive.


Together, we are changing lives.

The Door’s success lies in our commitment to meeting young people where they are and providing them with the comprehensive and integrated services they need to reach their potential, all for free and in a youth-centered environment.
