Helping Youth 24/7/365

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.

Jackson Street is open!

We are changing our annual spring fundraiser to a virtual fundraiser on Zoom. Join Us

Covid-19 Update

As Oregon updates its response to COVID-19, Jackson Street is currently allowed to continue to operate. We have chosen to keep our most critical services available to ensure the ongoing safety of our community’s most vulnerable youth.

  • We are providing street outreach to youth ages 10 – 24 in Linn, Benton, and Lincoln counties by delivering food and supplies and making sure they are okay, taking care of themselves, and know that we are here for them. Outreach Case Managers are maintaining connections with youth via phone or computer.
  • We are accepting youth ages 10 – 17 into our emergency shelter program but are focusing only on homeless youth and those in immediate risk of abuse and homelessness.
  • Families in need of respite can still be supported over the phone with regular check-ins.
  • Our Next Steps program is also an option for homeless youth ages 18 – 20 who want to participate in our transitional living program including housing, education, and employment support. (This is not an emergency service; youth must fill out an application and be interviewed to enter the program.

We are taking every precaution to keep the youth and our employees safe and healthy during this crisis. For all programs, we are screening for symptoms, doing daily temperature checks, sanitizing, and practicing social distancing.

If you are a youth or family of youth experiencing homelessness or at-risk of homelessness due to family conflict, call our 24 Hour Hotline: 800-901-2904. (If you have a medical emergency, please call 911)

We need your help. Please donate online or for donation questions, email our Development Director
