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.

Celebrating National Mentoring Month

The number one indicator of success for a youth is having a caring adult in their life. You can make an incredible difference for a youth by being that caring adult!

Our mentoring program has a waitlist of 17 youth who have not yet been paired with a mentor. Can that mentor be you?
This January, help us reach our goal of 10 NEW MENTORS.

Keeping Families Together, Building Resiliency

Cathy and Steve recently shared with us:
“Having Jackson Street as a support system gives us the strength and confidence to be better parents. Jackson Street saved our family.
