forage | ˈfôrij, ˈfärij | verb

(of a person or animal) search widely for food or provisions.

(of me with p:ear) pursue what sustains me.


Join us on Saturday April 20th, 2019 for p:ear blossoms “Forage” celebrating 17 years of creatively mentoring Portland’s homeless youth!

We'll be serving up sumptuous music, local entertainment and yummy food. Plus, live auction packages might just send you home with a trip to Maui or France, or a dinner party for 12!

As always, your entire ticket price goes toward to providing vital services to our Portland's most vulnerable young people—our kids.


See me? I'm 17, too, and I'm foraging for all I need. I'm discovering self-advocacy. Standing on newfound strength. Finding my force. Unleashing my voice. I'm learning how to support myself—physically, emotionally, creatively. Here I learn. How to find and build shelter from what I have where I am. How to make and sell espresso drinks and draw leaves in the foam. How to change a bike tire. How to apply for a job or school. How to ask and listen. With p:ear's help, I'm growing my true, good, strong self. I am 17 and I am finding my way forward.
