New Avenues For Youth offers programs and services that empower homeless youth to exit street life, believing that every young person should have food, shelter, and access to education and job training.  The organization goes beyond meeting basic needs and offer programs that heal young lives and foster growth and independence—including a bicycle program and including bike locks on their wish list. Bikes are the most affordable transportation option for their kids.
