Youth Prevention Services

Youth Prevention Services

Treatment and Prevention Programs, Youth Prevention Services, are at five Home Forward  (formerly, Housing Authority of Portland) sites.  

Services strengthen families by offering culturally-informed activities and support shaped by community input, including fun family and youth activities, homework clubs, parenting education, and substance abuse and gambling prevention education. Youth Prevention Services served over 300 youth from August 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013.

Sites include Stark Manor, Eastwood Court, Dekum Court, Sequoia Square, and Plaza Townhomes.

Funding support for YPS Volunteer Program expansion was provided by PGE Foundation funds. Thank you!
