Fourth Annual Dinner In The Vines Largest Ever

Janus hosted a sold-out crowd for the fourth annual Dinner In The Vines, raising more than $41,000 for the children, youth and families Janus serves every year. More than 150 guests gathered at ArborBrook Vineyards in Newberg, Oregon for our largest fundraiser of the year.

As the sun set over the vineyards, guests savored an outstanding four-course dinner by Portland Chef Jenn Louis featuring local, organic ingredients from our own Food Works Farm. Each course was paired with an ArborBrook wine and enjoyed with live jazz. Dave and Mary Hansen, owners of ArborBrook Vineyards, pledged to donate 20% of evening wine sales to Janus.

This special event has grown steadily since its inception four years ago but 2014 brought the first ever sold-out crowd. Our guests were again treated to some of the best food and wine the Northwest has to offer while generously supporting the youth and programs of Janus.

This event would not have been possible without the generous support of ArborBrook Vineyards, Chef Jenn Louis, our corporate sponsors and all 150 attendees! Thank you for your contributions to this wonderful evening.

Visit The Sharing Tree at Washington Square Mall & Look for Janus Youth With the Red Dot on Gift Tag

The Sharing Tree at Washington Square Mall is a great way to make sure each of our youth has a gift to open on Christmas morning. Just pick an ornament from the tree located in the Nordstrom wing, near Williams-Sonoma and purchase the item listed on the tag. Return the unwrapped gifts to the Sharing Tree by December 20th so the gifts can be delivered by Christmas. These gifts are distributed to Janus and eight other charities throughout the Portland metro area. Each year, more than 4,500 gifts are given to those in need through the Washington Square Sharing Tree.

Employee Spotlight—Sina Youssefzadeh

Sina is a passionate advocate for marginalized youth and social justice. Five years ago when he moved to Portland and was involved in grassroots social justice work, he learned about Janus’ work in the community and applied for a Crisis Intake Specialist position at Harry’s Mother, our Runaway Youth Services program. Since then, Sina has continued to help develop a trauma informed approach to the work done within his cohort, build relationships with youth and families and offer referrals to other partnering agencies. We talked to Sina to find out more about what he does in his current position.
