New Door Wins American Red Cross Hero Award
Each year, local chapters of the American Red Cross recognize Heroes from the community and highlight the life-saving impact that each Hero made. On September 22, 2011 New Door was honored as the Hero Organization in the Bay Area that performed exemplary community service.
According to the American Red Cross, New Door has shown “the spirit of heroism through courage, dedication and character.” Several individuals were honored at the event in September, but New Door was an organization whose work “truly inspired the nomination committee.”
Serving at-risk youth in the Bay Area has been at the forefront of New Door for many years and this is the third award that New Door has received from prestigious organizations since 2010.
New Door Receives Bank of America Award
In November 2010, New Door received the prestigious Bank of America Neighborhood Excellence Initiative Award.

Please take a minute to watch the video and celebrate the success of our youth!
New Door Earns Tipping Point Community Award
In December 2010, Tipping Point Community, a large anti-poverty nonprofit organization in the Bay Area, awarded New Door their prestigious Tipping Point Award. Since 2005, Tipping Point has raised and awarded more than $38M to help make poverty preventable, and New Door is proud to have their support.
For New Door, it’s about more than winning awards. It’s about building the community of support so that together we can help each of the 8,000 young people in San Francisco in need make a successful transition to adulthood and lead productive and meaningful lives.
