Support p:ear and Portland's Homeless Youth!
(This campaign begins October 10 and ends October 31, 2018)
How will the campaign fund for change?
Each year, p:ear serves 800 homeless youth, and about 65 youth per day. Whether we're providing home-cooked meals and dry socks or custom mentoring or on-the-job training, we know that when we support and believe in our kids, we create a healthier community — for everyone.
Why do you want other people to support you?
People can give time, money or resources to help support p:ear! See pearmentor.org for our current needs lists, how to volunteer and donation info.
Why is your organization so unique?
At p:ear our work starts with the realities of today. It ends when young people find and embrace tomorrow. Our beauty—our core essence—is in everything in between. It’s in the kids, their daily experience, their struggles, and triumphs. It’s in their journey. We believe every homeless youth has a future.
Why do you need to raise these funds?
It doesn’t take much to create an environment for someone to experience love, trust and hope. All gifts allow us to provide youth with the little tokens of relationship building — like coffee, socks, or a new journal — that will make all the difference as they begin their journey inside p:ear.
when you donate US15 to p:ear you will be able to stream female filmmaker Darcy Miller’s ONE BIRD AT A TIME, a comedy webseries that is funny, absorbing and thought-provoking.
Endorsement from Darcy Miller, ONE BIRD AT A TIME Actor/Writer/Director/Producer
A number of One Bird at a Time’s episodes are concerned with the social problems most visible on our streets and in our daily lives — homelessness being one of the biggest. p:ear deals directly with an area which is both painful to realize, and one where we can make a lot of change: homeless youth. Their programs help young people live, trust, and find stability in their lives again.
