What is the Youth Outreach Board?
We are a compilation of dedicated members in the community, moved to positive action for the women and children of Rose Haven, and in a larger sense, those of the Portland metropolitan area. As high school activists, our primary goals are awareness, in-kind donations and financial giving.
By being intentional catalysts for change, we hope to spread awareness and inspire action by unifying our community for the benefit of the women and children challenged by homelessness and abuse.
