Volunteer with Washington County’s Homeless Youth Mentoring Program

1,382 students in the Beaverton School District were homeless in the 2015-2016 school year, according to data collected by the Oregon Department of Education. That means approximately 3.4% of total students enrolled in the BSD lived in cars, in shelters, in motels, on a friend's couch or on the streets at some point during the school year.

The Washington County Homeless Education Network (HEN) and the Beaverton School District H.E.L.P Center (Homeless Education Liaison Center) can help homeless youth enroll in school, with transportation to and from school, receive free or reduced cost school meals, and is now developing a mentoring program which you can be a part of!

Become a mentor for homeless students in the BSD at the H.E.L.P. Center and volunteer one hour per week during the school day. Contact Mary Metheney at or at 503-356-5076.

If you are interested in mentoring in another Washington County School District, please contact the HEN Office at 503-356-5071. They will direct you to the appropriate program coach for that school district.

HEN is a membership group of all seven school districts in Washington County and their Homeless Education Liaisons, like the BSD H.E.L.P. Center, which has been serving the needs of homeless youth and families in the Beaverton School District since 2001. HEN has been awarded an Oregon Department of Education grant to develop this mentoring program.
