Lumina Hospice & Palliative Care previously Benton Hospice Service is dedicated to compassionate care for people diagnosed with terminal illness and their families. A team of professionals and volunteers work together to complement the care provided by friends and loved ones. Benton Hospice care enables people to enjoy comfort, choice, and control over their remaining life.
Benton Hospice also offers education and support for caregivers, as well as those dealing with loss or grief. Benton Hospice Service is a community resource for education about end-of-life care and related topics. "Transitions" at Benton Hospice is a no-cost program offered for those not quite ready for hospice care, but who need assistance due to serious illness.
Benton Hospice Service is located in Corvallis, Oregon and has provided care to terminally ill patients and their families since 1980 as an independent, non-profit, community organization. While we serve residents of Benton and Linn County, we also provide end-of-life care for people living in adjoining counties (Lane, Lincoln, and Polk). From Monmouth to Monroe to Junction City, from Alsea to Albany to Lebanon, Benton Hospice Service is here to help.
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
