New Alternatives increases the self-sufficiency of LGBTQ+ homeless youth and young adults by enabling them to transition out of the shelter system to stable adult lives. We do this by providing long-term support, weekly case management, education services, life skills training, community-building recreational activities, opportunities for self-expression, and programs for HIV+ youth. Our guiding principles are those of harm reduction, youth development, and empowerment.

About Katie Kopajtic and Tres Brujas

Katie Kopajtic is a writer, filmmaker and theater artist based in Tarrytown. As an artist, she is drawn to the friction between fantasy and reality, especially as it relates to a transitional period in a person’s life–the magic that is possible within the liminal space created by change. 

In 2016 she formed Tres Brujas Productions with her wife Monica Robles. Under Tres Brujas, she directed her short film “The Actor,” starrin Lynn Cohen and Catherine Curtin. In 2017 she brought her first solo show “Confessions of a Personal Trainer” to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it ran for a 26-show run amid four star reviews and sold out performances. In 2019 she premiered “Modern Witches” at the Charm City Fringe Festival in Baltimore, which continued in Nashville, TN with The Barbershop Theater. She is thrilled to have a joint revival and New York premiere here in the Rivertowns!

When she is not working on theatre or film, Katie writes creative nonfiction. Her essays can be found in Catapult, Peach Mag, Boreal, and the Under Review (upcoming). Katie holds a B.F.A. in Acting from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
