If you are between the ages of 12 and 24, then you can become a member of The Door. It’s easy, it’s free and it’s completely confidential. No appointment, forms or paperwork are needed! Just walk in and go to the Member Services Department on Monday through Friday between 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., and until 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays. Joining The Door means new opportunities, new friends, learning and fun, and it also means joining a diverse community of young people who represent many parts of the world. General programming at The Door takes place from 2:00 – 8:00 p.m., with extended hours until 10:00 p.m. on Wednesdays. Health, mental health and legal appointments – as well as HSE and other Career & Education classes – take place earlier in the day. Specific drop-in hours for runaway and homeless youth begin at 11am M-F, and 12-6pm on Saturdays.

*Changes to membership hours will begin on February 10th, 2020.*

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 hmulero@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.
