Youth Housing Initiative of Clackamas County

DevNW believes everyone deserves to have a place to live that they love, and that is affordable to them. To help reach that goal, DevNW started our Youth Housing Initiative (YHI) in Clackamas County, which helps young people to find and maintain housing.

Youth Housing Initiative helps those between 16 and 24 years old who are experiencing homelessness or fleeing domestic violence. We do so by working with them to find a home, paying their rental deposit, and providing rent assistance for up to two years. Once participants find housing, we work with them over two years or more to reach other goals they have, from their health and wellness, to their education and career. The Youth Housing Initiative is a part of Clackamas County’s Continuum of Care, which serves people who are experiencing homelessness, or who are at risk of losing housing.

For questions about the program, or if you want to see if you are eligible, please contact us:
