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.

November is National Runaway Prevention Month

Together we can “Illuminate Youth” and raise awareness of youth homelessness in our communities. Join us in either county to better understand our programs, and light a candle in solidarity with youth experiencing homelessness. The evening will end with our second “Skatepark After Dark” event – a resource fair for youth.

Next Steps Program Doubles in Size

We are so proud of the many youth who have already graduated from our Next Steps program, and we look forward to reaching even more young adults who need support while they build resiliency and independence. We’re also proud of our caring community who helped make it possible! Learn more about Next Steps HERE.
