Helping Youth 24/7/365
Jackson Street Youth Services offers youth a safe place to live and resources to work through crises and towards a brighter, more stable future. Founded to fill a gap in housing for homeless youth, we now serve youth throughout Linn, Benton, and Lincoln Counties. We rely on donations and partnerships. Together, we will end youth homelessness.
You’re Invited! Albany House shelter REOPENING
Join us for a (re)Opening Celebration and Tours:
Tuesday, June 28th from 3-6pm (drop-in)
Thursday, June 30th from 11am-2pm (drop-in)
Our Albany House shelter has been closed for the past 10 months, due to much needed renovations. We have been serving all youth and families in need at our Corvallis House during this time.
This week marks a very exciting time for us as we re-open our Albany House AND temporarily close our Corvallis House (for the first time in 20 years) to complete a much needed “refresh” on the house. It is our intention to move quickly on the Corvallis House project and re-open as soon as possible, however we do not have a date at this time.
- All youth will be moved by the evening of June 3rd
- The Corvallis House will officially be temporarily closed on June 4th
- Albany House will be open for new referrals starting June 6th
Albany House is located at 1240 7th Ave SE, Albany, OR 97321 and the direct number is 541-220-2950 ext. 1.
The updates will increase safety and ensure a beautiful and welcoming space for all youth. Highlights include space to serve more youth (from 10 to 16) and a more open common space for their activities, homework, and relaxation. Come see the welcoming new space!
In late 2020, a local 13-year-old donated $675 of his 4H winnings to the Albany House and spurred a peer-to-peer fundraising campaign called “Uprise” to raise the remaining funds needed. To date, we are 90% of the way to our goal with $100,000 still needed from the community for this project.
Thank you for celebrating 20 years with us at Youth Rising 2022
