Home Life Mission Statement: Home Life assists people with developmental disabilities to enjoy active, productive and independent lives.
Home Life believes...
People with developmental disabilities should be treated with dignity and respect, and should be involved in decision making that affects their lives.
People with developmental disabilities have many capabilities and should be encouraged to live as independently as possible within a safe environment that fosters growth.
People with developmental disabilities are valuable and contribute to the community.
People with developmental disabilities, their families, and the community, enjoy improved health, happiness, and quality of life through our services.

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
We believe that-
Children are an integral part of a community and the future of our society.
Our best hope for the future is to support growth and enrichment through challenging, fun activities with the guidance of caring adult role models.
Children learn and develop through a choice of diverse experiences.
Every child deserves equal access to community programs and resources.
Adults gain immense satisfaction by personally contributing to the positive development of youth.
