New Meadows – on the boards
New Meadows is a proposed project that will expand the reach and influence of the Bridge Meadows community by providing safe haven for at-risk youth aging out of the foster care system. New Meadows will be a partnership between New Avenues for Youth, Bridge Meadows, Children First of Oregon, and the Home Builders Foundation. The facility will be 9,800 square feet and have 15 apartments for young adults ages 18-24. The site is a block away from Bridge Meadows, fostering connections with families, elders, and support staff. A Resident Assistant will live onsite helping to provide guidance, support and access to essential tools as these young adults transition into the next phase of their life.
