Home Runs for Homeless Youth

Home Runs for Homeless Youth

Did you know that Beaverton has the highest number of homeless students in Oregon? Sadly, it’s true. Beaverton’s homeless student population has soared to an all-time high of 1,580. There are many reasons youth are forced from their homes—from abuse to mental illness to drug and alcohol dependencies. Some families live in poverty, while others cannot accept their child’s sexual orientation or teen pregnancy. Once youth are exposed to life on the street, they’re more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol or become victims of prostitution.

The 2012 Leadership Beaverton class is bringing this issue to light by hosting a fund-raising kickball tournament. Proceeds will help HomePlate Youth Services establish a drop-in night for Beaverton. Currently, HomePlate connects youth to employment, housing, and education through street outreach and drop-in centers in Hillsboro.
