New Avenues for Youth’s complete approach to addressing youth homelessness is designed to help young people exit street life and prevent those at-risk of homelessness from experiencing it. Focusing on individual needs and personal goals, our programs position foster, at-risk and homeless youth aged 14-24 to overcome their barriers and realize their potential.

We are proud of our 2013-2014 outcomes:

• Our dedicated staff provided 1,711 hours of counseling and support.

92% of youth exited transitional housing into stable housing of their own.

• The first Joyce N. Furman Scholarship recipient graduated with a BA from Marylhurst University.

219 job and internship placements were achieved by youth in our PAVE job training program.

95 paid job opportunities were provided to youth through social enterprises owned and operated by New Avenues for Youth.

• New Avenues volunteers served more than 600 Empower Meals to homeless and at-risk youth through our Drop-in Center.
