Who we are.
Children in the foster care system can struggle to find a sense of belonging. They’re often left feeling angry and isolated. At Youth Unlimited, we're changing this.
We’re committed to giving our children a fresh start, connecting them to safe and stable homes, with folks who understand them.
What we do.
Youth Unlimited is an organization committed to providing culturally responsive therapeutic foster care and advocacy services.
A culturally responsive approach to foster care means helping adults see the many aspects that make up a child’s unique identity — including race, ethnicity, gender, language, disability, and sexual orientation — so that they can meet the child’s needs with empathy and understanding.
See how we’re working to bring this level of care to every child.
Community resources for LGBTQ+ kids are scarce. Youth Unlimited works to fill that gap and be a voice for this population. We prioritize the placement of LGBTQ+ youth and the recruitment of foster parents willing to work with them.

Youth Unlimited is the only African American-led foster care agency in Oregon. We're dedicated to growing our community of African American foster homes and foster homes of color.
We also work with adults of all backgrounds who want to open their homes and create safe, nurturing environments for the kids we serve. If you have a heart for this work, please reach out — we can certify you to become a culturally responsive foster parent!
