Building a better future for children, youth, adults, and families

Since 1970, Looking Glass has proudly provided assistance to individuals in our community, helping them lead more productive and fulfilling lives. We offer a wide range of services aimed toward solving challenges related to educational deficits, behavioral health issues, drug addiction, and homelessness. Our organization is nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) and is committed to providing exceptional customer service to the children, adolescents, and adults of Lane County.  


Sock Drive

Did you know that socks are one of the most highly requested items at shelters? The need for a pair of clean and warm socks only increases in the winter, when the weather turns cold and wet.

Join us in supporting homeless youth by donating new or gently used socks. We have collection bins distributed around town thanks to our community partners: Bi-Mart, Falling Sky, Macy’s, The Register-Guard, and McKenzie River Broadcasting. Socktoberfest runs until October 31st.
