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.

Rivera House Celebrates One-Year Anniversary

Over a year ago, the idea of creating a new and unique residential and re-entry program for LGBTQ youth began to take root. With the help of our partners from the Oregon Youth Authority (OYA) and the countless hours staff dedicated to purchasing and updating a residence, the Rivera House was born. Today, the Rivera House is fully staffed and houses up to nine residents who are transitioning from the custody of OYA to independence. The goal of the program is to prepare youth leaving incarceration to become law-abiding, successful members of the community while addressing the special needs of LGBTQ youth. We spoke to the Rivera House Program Director, Deven Edgerton to share his thoughts about the program on this one-year anniversary.
