We change the lives of 6,000 youth every year through our 40 programs in Oregon and Washington.
Youth who have runaway or are homeless. Youth who have been trafficked for sex. Teen parents and youth living in low-income neighborhoods.
When you provide youth opportunities to build successful futures, our entire community benefits. Help be part of their success.
When many of us think of a dream job, it is usually something glamorous, like rock star, bestselling author, or video game designer. Not Neal Sand. His dream job is the one he has, Yellow Brick Road Supervisor. In this job, Neal gets to do what he loves: building relationships with at-risk youth and instilling hope in their lives.
Starting a family at any age is a life changing event, and becoming a parent at a young age presents its own unique challenges. Young parents may be unprepared for the needs of a new family: providing housing, caring for an infant and establishing financial stability. Insights, our teen Parent Program, helps young parents to navigate through this by providing support and education with home visits.
