Share the Plate Recipient for May 2017 is HOME Youth and Resource Center

HOME Youth Resource Center, Salem, Oregon

HOME Youth Resource Center, Salem, OregonMay’s Share the Plate recipient is HOME Youth & Resource Center in Salem, a drop-in spot for at-risk and homeless teens in Salem. There they can also get help and get access to resources. The region has no homeless youth shelter and the program addresses a critical need in our community.

Originally a grassroots organization of concerned adults and homeless youth, HOME is now part of the Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency.

On May 7 at both services Sarah White, the youth empowerment program coordinator will offer a few remarks about HOME and the needs of homeless teens in the community. Our Share the Plate program allows us to support organizations serving a community need.
