Rose Haven is a great opportunity to directly help and impact people's lives. I love kids and after volunteering at the Portland Children's Museum for several years, working at a nonprofit where I can help the less fortunate feels amazing. I'm learning so much from being on the board and volunteering on the floor; I am so grateful for this opportunity.

ALEX

Lincoln High School

I believe that it is very important for young people to give back to their communities. There are many people in Portland who don’t have a place to sleep at night and don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Rose Haven is an incredible organization that provides their guests with much needed services are resources. From the first moment I heard about Rose Haven, I knew I wanted to be involved.

I joined the Youth Board as a way to reach out to the community and help those less fortunate around us. I want to reduce the stigma and preconceptions behind people facing difficult circumstances and find a way to change the way people view these situations.

ILLIANA

The Youth Outreach Board is important to me because I want to help homeless or abused people in our community. I hope the actions we take will support women and children now as well as having an exponential affect in the future. I am grateful to be part of YOB’s first chapter and take part in service with other young activists.

GRACE

I decided to join the Youth Outreach Board because so many people experience situations I may never fully understand, but through being a member on the board, I can help to improve their situations.

GILLIAN

Sunset High School

I think it’s very important, especially for today’s youth, to focus on and give to those who aren’t as fortunate as us, rather than just focus on ourselves. I also think that this Youth Outreach Board is a good way to support our community through providing a safe space for women and children who are out on the streets or don’t feel safe in their own houses.

I believe that homelessness is an incredibly prevalent problem that many walks of life suffer from, and yet there is still a stigma surrounding it. By being a part of the Youth Outreach Board I am able to break down the stigma and educate myself and others about the severity and challenges of homelessness.
