The Alba Collaborative is an innovative, culturally-responsive partnership that provides prevention, early intervention, and 24/7 crisis line and supportive services to youth ages 9-17 who are at-risk of or experiencing housing instability. The program offers community-and site-based case management, family mediation and reunification support, in-reach to schools and response to law enforcement, crisis intervention and short-term emergency housing menu, basic needs and transportation, client assistance, resource referral and navigation (including access to alternative education options, LGBTQ-specific programs, wraparound services for gang-impacted and sex-trafficked youth).
This is a partnership between New Avenues for Youth, Latino Network, Lines for Life, Youth Progress Association, Safe Place, Multnomah County and the many community providers and stakeholders represented throughout intersecting service systems.
