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.

Will's Story

“It was all too much for anyone, let alone a 17-year old.”

“Hello. My name is Will. A dear friend of mine introduced me to Jackson Street. At school she found me in the hallway, trying to hold back tears as I once again confided in her about the horrors of my situation at home. She had heard it all so many times, but never before had I been able to muster the courage to leave.

It was all too much for anyone, let alone a 17-year old.

I knew I could’t live like that anymore. I deserved a normal existence, with friends, age-appropriate autonomy, and a place where I felt safe.”

Will achieved all of that and more. Read the rest of Will’s story below:
