How to become a Door member

The Door’s membership process is easy — there is no fee to join or requirements to become a member, and you’ll have access to everything you need. To start, you will have a brief interview with an intake counselor to talk about yourself and your interests, and to learn about all of The Door’s Programs & Services. After the interview, your intake counselor will help you sign up for any of the services you want or need. Come join us today and discover a whole new world of opportunity!  

If you are a young person with questions about becoming a member, please email membership@door.org.

If you are a service provider or affiliated with another organization and would like to arrange a tour of The Door, please contact bhuguley@door.org.
