Jackson Street Youth Services gives youth a safe place to live and resources that get them on the road to a better life.
Founded to fill a gap in local support services for housing homeless youth, we serve Linn and Benton Counties and rely on donations and partnerships from throughout the region to give youth in crisis a stable future.
Hello (and a Rap) from our Executive Director
Lately I’ve become obsessed with the play Hamilton. Do you know about it? It’s an award-winning Broadway musical, and my oldest son, Whitman, bought me the soundtrack for Christmas (he knew I would love it because we are both dorks for history and musicals). The play is the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of our country’s founding fathers. The first song gives us his background by telling – rapping actually – about his traumatic childhood.
You can read more about the life of young Alex here!If his community hadn’t stepped up, it is unlikely that any of this would have happened.
