New Avenues for Youth works in partnership with our community to prevent youth homelessness and provide young people experiencing or at risk of homelessness with the resources and skills needed to lead healthy, productive lives. Since 1997, our programs and services have impacted nearly 30,000 young people as they work to overcome barriers, pursue their goals, and realize their potential.
Bottom Line for Portland
In the 2019-20 program year, New Avenues for Youth provided 1,327 youth with services, including 320 in our workforce development program, 368 in our education programming, and 170 in our housing programs. Over 450 young people accessed the critical services they needed in our Drop-In Day Center—including meals, showers, laundry, relationship and a safe space.

“New Avenues for Youth has been the one stable force in my life. They patiently pointed me in the right direction with life goals, even when the only thing I first believed I could think of focusing on was getting through the day.” —A youth served by New Avenues
