Homeless Youth Services

The Native American Youth and Family Center is part of the Homelss Youth Continuum in Multnomah County. We work with youth experiencing homelessness and instability, ages 15 to 24.

Unaccompanied youth ages 16 – 24 years old who are experiencing homelessness in Multnomah County should contact Homeless Youth Services Advocates who can meet with youth interested in services either here at NAYA or out in the community. Anyone is welcome to come during our drop in hours from 3-5 p.m. to complete a screening or to learn about our services.

The goal of the Homeless Youth Program is to re-engage youth with positive adult relationships and role models in the community to support stability within their lives.  Youth can be between the ages of 15 – 24, and need to be experiencing some level of homelessness.
