who we are

Since 2001, Doors of Changehas been transforming the lives of homeless youth, one young person at a time. Originally called Photocharity, the 501(c)(3) has raised over $4.7 million. For more than 18 years we have helped place over 2,000 homeless youth in safe housing and off the streets.

In 2013 the agency identified a significant gap in the services and resources available to “transitional–age-youth” (those between the ages of 16 and 25) and decided to re-brand as Doors of Change and deliver a unique service to address this critical need. We work with youth ages 17-25 years old.

Recognizing that trust is often a significant barrier for youth in need of services, Doors of Change selected music and art as a non-threatening way to engage young people living on the streets. By offering music and art instruction in a small group setting, youth are given the opportunity to explore their feelings and challenges through the arts, achieve a sense of mastery for the first time, develop social skills that are positive and constructive, and create a vision for the future that is filled with possibility.

there’s no better time to change the world than right now!

Doors of Change enjoys a wide range of public and private support, though the majority of its funding comes through the generosity of private donors and an annual fundraiser. The music industry has been especially touched by the cause with artists such as Billy Joel, Elton John, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, B.B. King, Aretha Franklin, (and many others), donating signed memorabilia that has raised $850,000.
