Founded in 2002, p:ear has provided invaluable mentoring services to Portland’s homeless and parent-less young people. p:ear’s mission is to build positive relationships with 15-25-year-old homeless and transitional youth, through education, arts, and recreation, to affirm personal worth and create more meaningful and healthier lives. Each year, p:ear serves roughly 800 homeless young people. Currently, we see 65 youth per day. p:ear was created from a vision of compassion. We believe that each youth deserves to empower themselves and to develop a positive self-identity that encompasses a sense of self-worth and a capacity for risk, growth, change. pearmentor.org
