Albany House is a shelter for youth ages 10-17 years old. It is located at 1240 7th Ave SE, in Albany, near the skatepark.
Jackson Street Youth Services helps runaway, homeless and at-risk youth in our region find the safety and stability they need. Albany House and Corvallis House – 24/7 emergency shelters – provide crisis stabilization for youth between the ages of 10-17. Longer-term housing for young adults ages 18-20 is also available.
While staying at a 24/7 Jackson Street shelter, youth and their families work to reunite whenever possible. Together with paid, trained staff, youth cook meals, complete household chores and basic life skills, and attend community activities.They stay in school, and set goals. Jackson Street staff even follow up after youth leave to ensure success.
Beyond the shelter doors, prevention and outreach programs halt youth homelessness before it begins. Staff meet youth where they’re at – in schools, on the streets, and at drop-in centers – building trust and connecting youth to resources and positive adult role-models. Additionally, our growing Next Steps program provides longer-term housing and teaches crucial life and job skills for young adults ages 18-20 to ensure long-term self-sufficiency.
With the help of our caring community, Jackson Street is building a stronger community by ending youth homelessness in our region.
