Unaccompanied Youth in Our Community Need Our Help
The TTSD community includes unaccompanied youth who are young people not in the consistent presence of a parent or guardian and are often living in unstable situations. During the 2019-20 school year, there were 3,700 unaccompanied high school-aged students in Oregon. In Tigard-Tualatin School District, there were 17.
These students need our help, especially during these difficult times. They not only need a stable place to live, but they also need a stable place to connect remotely to school. Second Home hosts provide long-term housing for unaccompanied students so that they can focus on high school, graduate, and pursue their goals and dreams. Second Home is currently recruiting volunteer home providers to meet the needs of these students.
Could you provide housing for a local student by making a room in your home available? If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about hosting a student, please contact Amy Brownell, regional coordinator for Second Home in Tigard-Tualatin, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is your child or family struggling with mental health or wellbeing?
