“Where all homeless youth have hope and a path forward.”

our mission

Maslow Project’s mission is to offer every homeless child and youth the probability of success and the opportunity for a better life. We do this by providing resources for basic needs, removing barriers to education and employment, and fostering self-sufficiency in a collaborative and empowering environment.

our services

Our Outreach Team goes out into the community to meet youth where they are. We offer basic needs, food and more information about our services.

We have case managers and family advocates in schools through out Jackson and Josephine Counties, offering direct support to our youth in their schools.

Basic needs

We offer access to clothing items, food boxes, hygiene supplies, hot meals, snacks and other services at our drop-in center.


Individual and/or family Mental Health Counseling and Crisis Intervention is available by appointment.

Family advocacy

Family Advocates are often the first Maslow staff homeless kids and their parents/guardians meet: both at our Resource Center and at schools.
