p:ear youth are students, artists, writers, cooks, baristas, mechanics, musicians, athletes, activists, and advocates. Growing together. Making their way through the world.
We believe every young person should have the opportunity to see a life for themselves beyond the most difficult circumstances they face.
We know that homelessness isn’t a character trait. It’s an experience. When communities work together, that experience can be temporary. We fiercely believe every p:ear youth has a vibrant future. We’re here to walk with them, as partners, friends, and champions as they discover and grow toward it.
We are a creative community rooted in the values of love, trust, and belonging.
We work closely with the young people we serve and partner with a network of providers to ensure youth get what they need—mental health support, drug and alcohol support, pregnancy and parenting support, shelter, mentorship, housing and more.
Our staff and volunteers create beautiful meals, incredible outdoor experiences, challenge young minds, and offer healthy relationships young people can rely on as they plan for their futures.
Inside our dynamic community, young people support and guide one another as much as we do.
