BENEFITING: New Avenues for Youth, Inc.
Each year an estimated 1.7 million people under 18 will experience the challenge of being homeless. 12-17 year olds are more at risk for being homeless than adults, and an estimated 20,000 teens are homeless in Oregon every year. That number is even expanding. LGBTQ youth account for 20%-40 of the population of homeless youth in the US. Giving Hope is a fundraiser to help give back to the homeless teens in Oregon and Washington County, we are excepting donations of money, clothes, blankets, outdoor gear ( such as tents, sleeping bags, etc.)
