Preventing youth from going out on the street,
and intervening quickly if they do
One night on the street is too many. The 15th Night is a community-wide partnership that helps more than 480 of our Eugene-Springfield students who are navigating school and life alone, without a permanent place to spend the night. Bringing together existing community resources, the 15th Night focuses these resources on the safety and well-being of our vulnerable Eugene-Springfield youth who do not have a parent or guardian to support them.
Why Are We Called the 15th Night?
Youth who are “new” to our streets are more likely to become chronically homeless if we do not intervene within 15 nights
