   2014 Holiday Appeal

       to Our Supporters

New Alternatives is a grassroots, 99% volunteer organization that operates on a skeletal budget of less than $135,000 per year, without any federal aid. We rely on the efforts of a single full-time staff member and over 300 volunteers. Our funding sources are entirely small private grants, and the contributions of individuals like you; people who care about homeless LGBT youth. This year, one of our grants was unexpectedly reduced, leaving us with a year-end short-fall of $20,000.

We added new services at New Alternatives this year, including on-site HIV/STD testing provided by our partner Project Stay, and an on-site health insurance enroller to ensure that all of our youth have access to healthcare.

I know you get a lot of appeals this time of year from many worthy organizations, but keep in mind that when you give to New Alternatives, you are directly funding services for homeless LGBT youth and young adults – not overpaid administrators or hefty overhead costs.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to New Alternatives either by clicking on the donate button at the top of this page, or by check payable to “New Alternatives” and mailed to: 83 Christopher St, NYC NY 10014.

Thank you,
Kate Barnhart
Director

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.
