The Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS) announced they are covering the registration fee for 350 Oregonians to attend Point Source Youth’s 2nd Annual Rural Conference on Youth Homelessness.
They will cover the costs along with the Youth Experiencing Homelessness Program and Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS).
