New Avenues for Youth


To prevent youth homelessness and provide homeless and at-risk young people with the resources and skills needed to lead healthy, productive lives.

Bottom Line for Portland

In the past program year, nearly 1,400 youth received services from New Avenues. NA provided 7,136 transitional-housing bed nights, made 202 job and internship placements, and served 592 youth in its drop-in day services center.

“New Avenues looked at my individual needs and goals and gave me the resources to help achieve them…including helping me navigate housing and school. I’ve found community, friends and support—something we all need to succeed.” —Robert
