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.

Anyone living in the Portland metropolitan area knows that affordable housing is one of the biggest problems facing the city and its residents. For homeless youth, this is a huge issue. The cost of housing is so high that often the only affordable housing is far away from other services that many of them need. This is where Changes Apartment Assistance—our independent living apartment placement program for 16-20 year olds—steps in. Designed to assist youth in overcoming the final barriers to complete independence, Changes’ staff work collaboratively on housing searches with eligible youth. Over the past four years, 57 youth obtained housing thanks to Changes.
