New Alternatives is dedicated to reducing homelessness among LGBTQ+ youth and young adults in New York City by addressing areas critical to their development and well-being: housing, physical and mental health, education, and employment.
With a strong focus on harm reduction and long-term support, we offer a broad range of direct services and referrals to meet the needs of our clients and advocate on their behalf to ensure they survive and thrive.
New Alternatives assists LGBTQ+ young people who are 16–30 years of age. To learn about our services and how you can receive help or refer someone in need, click here.
