Since 2001, Doors of Change™ has been transforming the lives of homeless youth in San Diego County, one young person at a time. For more than 22 years we have helped place over 2,800 homeless youth in safe housing and off the streets.
In 2022 we helped a record 349 homeless youth get safe housing.
In 2023 we anticipate the need will be even greater.
Doors of Change helps “TAY” Youth to get off the street, become self sufficient, and reconnect with loved ones.

The first Music Angel to help Doors of Change was Billy Joel. He liked our vision of getting homeless youth off the streets and autographed a keyboard for us. Soon after, Billy Joel told Elton John about the organization and Elton agreed to sign a keyboard. Over the years these two superstars have signed 10 signed keyboards for us.
Their support helped us earn the support of many more musicians and entertainers, including B.B King, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Carlos Santana, Aretha Franklin, The Who, Ringo Starr, James Taylor, Buddy Guy, Etta James, Willy Nelson, Tony Bennett, Steve Martin, Joe Cocker, Steve Winwood, Seal, Michael McDonald, Keb Mo, Chris Isaak, Johnny Winter, Jason Mraz and many more.
Comedians that have helped us include Robin Williams, Billy Crystal and Jerry Seinfeld. Since 2001 we have raised $874,000 selling signed memorabilia. To see currently available memorabilia vist
