Marys River Watershed Council, based out of Corvallis, Oregon, works to inspire and support voluntary stewardship of the Marys River Watershed.
From Marys Peak to the Willamette River, from forests to farms, prairies to ponds, backyards to school yards, we?re cultivating strong neighborhood ownership of the watershed?s health.
We envision a future where abundant native fish live in the shaded creeks and rivers of our watershed. People feel connected to this place and see themselves as active stewards of the land and water. Investing in voluntary partnerships, the Marys River Watershed Council is a catalyst for restoring natural systems in a resilient watershed.
The results inspire us.
At Jackson Street, we believe every young person deserves safe housing, positive adult role models, and opportunities to rise above challenging situations.
Albany House and Corvallis House ? 24/7 emergency shelters ? provide crisis stabilization for youth between the ages of 10-17 who are experiencing or at-risk-of homelessness. While staying at Jackson Street, youth learn social and life skills that build self-sufficiency.
While staying at a 24/7 Jackson Street shelter, youth work to reunite with their families whenever possible. Together with paid, trained staff, youth cook meals, learn 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 long-term 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 needed resources.
Two ?Next Steps? houses focus on job skills and independence for young people ages 18-20 who would otherwise be homeless.
With your help, Jackson Street is building a stronger community by ending youth homelessness in our region. Learn more at www.jacksonstreet.org

Every child deserves equal access to community programs and resources.
