The Alliance

The Alliance is a trauma-informed team with lived experience who provide youth services in our community and work closely with partner agencies to provide rapid, wraparound support to the unhoused youth in Lane County.

Host Home Program

The Alliance Host Home Program provides a safe and supportive environment for at-risk, unhoused, and underserved youth aged 14 – 24 in Lane County. Our Host Homes connect youth in need with caring hosts who provide shelter as well as a pathway to a brighter future. By opening your home to short-term stays for local youth experiencing houselessness, you can provide the stability youth need to transition to permanent housing and a stable, supportive future. All you need is a spare room and the willingness to help.
