At Jackson Street, we believe every young person deserves safe housing, positive adult role models, and opportunities to rise above challenging situations. YOU are an important part of this work!
Albany House and Corvallis House -- 24/7 emergency shelters -- provide crisis stabilization for youth between the ages of 10-17, who are experiencing or at-risk-of homlessness. While staying at Jackson Street, youth learn social and life skills that build self-sufficiency. Beyond the shelter doors, prevention and outreach programs halt youth homelessness before it begins. You can find our staff in schools, on the streets, and at drop-in centers. Additionally, "Next Steps" houses focus on job skills and independence for young people ages 18-20 who would otherwise be homeless.
Starting with safety, stability and well-being, we help show youth a path to long-term success through positive relationships and skills for self-sufficiency. Jackson Street began locally as a grassroots organization and still relies on the generosity of local donors. We do this work together, as a resilient community: the youth themselves, our staff, and YOU! Together, we end youth homelessness.
