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.

January is National Mentoring Month

Jackson Street runs a certified Quality-Based Mentoring program for the Linn and Benton area, this program serves vulnerable youth ages 10-17 and our Next Steps youth. Check out this link for more information, get involved, or spread the word.


We asked our mentors, “What do you think your mentee has gained or learned from your mentoring relationship?” And here are some of their answers:

“She has more confidence talking in social situations. She enjoys laughing and being silly more often.”

“That not all male adults will abandon him.”

“That there are opportunities and new possibilities if they want to pursue them.”

“She has gained relationship building skills like how to talk things out instead of just getting upset.”

“She learned to enjoy and appreciate spending time outdoors, putting her vivid imagination to work by creating stories about the places we went to.”
