About This Activity

Oregon has thousands of youth without safe places to call home. In Marion & Polk counties alone there are over 2,000 who are counted through their schools, and this number doesn't account for those disconnected from the education system. The reality is the number is higher. At HOME Youth Services, we’ve served at-risk, runaway, street, and homeless youth between the ages of 11 and 17, in the Salem area since 1994. Please join us in raising awareness and funds for our youth through our virtual movement fundraising event titled: 2,000 Steps Home, with all donations going to better serve the youth in the community.

We will move in order to raise awareness for youth who are houseless, runaway, and at-risk. 
We will move for the youth who are food insecure due to their living situation. 
We will move for youth who cannot be at home with their family, because home is not a safe place. 
And we will move to better support the youth in our area as they strive to become self-sufficient. 
We move humbly, recognizing that empathy and compassion can make a huge difference as youth share their vulnerability. 
We invite you to move with us, as we strive to bring 2,000 youth home.
