Since 2001, Doors of Change has been transforming the lives of homeless youth, one young person at a time. Originally called Photocharity, the 501(c)(3) has raised over $4 million. For 11 years, they partnered with Storefront Shelter to help place 1,800 homeless youth in long-term, safe housing.
In 2013 the agency identified a significant gap in the services and resources available to “transitional–age-youth” (those between the ages of 16 and 25) and decided to re-brand as Doors of Change™ and deliver a unique service to address this critical need. We work with youth ages 12-24 years old.
Recognizing that trust is often a significant barrier for youth in need of services, Doors of Change selected music and art as a non-threatening way to engage young people living on the streets. By offering music and art instruction in a small group setting, youth are given the opportunity to explore their feelings and challenges through the arts, achieve a sense of mastery for the first time, develop social skills that are positive and constructive, and create a vision for the future that is filled with possibility.
Rotisserie Affair Catering were again chosen as the caterers to feed the VIPs before the main event. Instead of one of our set menus we customized a menu that suited the occasion. This included pulled chicken sliders, chicken drum sticks, vegetable platter, Italian salad, cheese platter, fruit salad, pita bread and bread sticks.
Doors of change is a very worthy cause and we look forward to supporting them in all of their future events.
