We change the lives of 6,000 youth every year through our 40 programs in Oregon and Washington.
Youth who have runaway or are homeless. Youth who have been trafficked for sex. Teen parents and youth living in low-income neighborhoods.
When you provide youth opportunities to build successful futures, our entire community benefits. Help be part of their success.
The Urban Institute recently released research and a short video focusing on how youth from the New Columbia neighborhood in North Portland are taking the issue of teen food insecurity into their own hands. Watch this 4 minute video to find out their innovative approach.
More than 100 golfers played in this year’s tournament at Riverside Golf & Country Club that benefits the 6000 youth Janus serves yearly.
The tournament honors the memory of Herm Gilliam, one of Portland’s great citizens, a member of the Portland Trail Blazers 1976-77 NBA Championship Team who served on Janus’ Board. A number of golfers present at the tournament who played with Herm in high school and the NBA remember him fondly.
