New Door served over 335 interns and graduates in 2015!
We are proud of this statistic because young people who have a job or are in school are moving in the right direction: their lives have a measure of stability; they are taking steps to move forward and prepare for adult life; they are developing confidence and hope. Read our 2015 Impact Report to learn more.
2015 Highlights include:
182 jobs were provided for youth.
