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.

Make the holidays brighter

Every holiday Jackson Street gathers wish lists of youth who have been affected by homelessness. Community supporters just like you fulfill the wishlists.
Together we make sure every youth we serve has a joyous holiday.

Want to be a supporter? Contact Program Director Kendra at to adopt a youth wishlist.
We ask that items be donated no later than Tuesday, December 18th.

Keeping Families Together, Building Resiliency

Cathy and Steve recently shared with us:
“Having Jackson Street as a support system gives us the strength and confidence to be better parents. Jackson Street saved our family.
