Pear - Creatively Mentoring Homeless Youth

Hosted by the fabulous Poison Waters with the extraordinary talent of Ezra Holbrook and Jenny Conlee of The Decemberists on stage, this event supports p:ear’s 14th year of engaging our community’s homeless youth with positive mentorship and experiences.

Join us for Sea-Shanties and a DJ set by Chris Funk, a gourmet wine dinner, an incredible Live Auction and a notoriously creative silent auction to raise funds for our critical programs.

At p:ear, we meet each young person that walks through our doors where they are. More often than not, our first engagement with a youth is as a port in the storm. We listen, offer safe space, and warm meals. By building relationships based on positive experiences and growth, we can help settle the storm and help p:ear youth navigate their journey to tomorrow
