Homeless and runaway teens. Youth in crisis. Jackson Street Youth Shelter 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 Corvallis and Albany areas.
“My home environment was abusive physically and emotionally. It got to the point that I was called worthless every day, and I began to believe it. I started to become suicidal…The shelter has helped me so much it is amazing.”
“Jackson Street has helped me realize that I am important and that I am a person…“In the end, I believe that without Jackson Street I would be living on the streets or not here today. I’m so happy they helped me move forward with my life and join a program as helpful and inspiring as Job Corps.”
