The Door

University Settlement has always recognized teens as one of the most vulnerable populations in New York City, and stepped in to run The Door when this renowned institution for high-risk youth was itself at risk almost twenty years ago.

Today, at The Door nearly 10,000 young people from low-income families, foster homes, communities with high unemployment and high rates of crime and violence have access to wraparound services. The Door embraces them with comprehensive health care, legal help, academic support, job training and meals that connect them to a community.

We are proud of the success of this innovative merger, which continues to serve as a strengthening force for both the Settlement and The Door.
