OBF to donate $15K to New Avenues for Youth

New Avenues for Youth takes a complete approach to addressing youth homelessness and its root causes, delivering support and resources that enable foster, at-risk, and homeless youth aged 14-24 to overcome their barriers and realize their potential. Through direct service, community partnership, advocacy, and data-driven evaluation, it helps youth exit street life and prevent those at risk of homelessness from experiencing it. The Oregon Brewers Festival is proud to make the organization this year's non-profit partner, and will donate $15,000 at the opening ceremonies on July 27. Learn more about the worthy organization at http://newavenues.org.
