EUGENE, Ore. -- St. Vincent de Paul plans to break ground soon on a home for homeless high school students in west Eugene.

The proposed site for the 13-bed facility is near the intersection of Avalon and Legacy, not far from Bethel Community Park. They are leasing the land from the Bethel School District.

The home will be for boys ages 16 to 18 and will be staffed 24 hours.

“For many of them their trajectory is downward because they have a lack of support and accountability,” said Paul Neville of St. Vincent de Paul. “What we want to do is reverse that trajectory. We want to provide them with secure housing, council, food, structure, community support, mentors.”

St. Vincent de Paul recently opened a similar home for teen girls in Eugene.
