Board of Directors Member Spotlight - Sue Campo

We welcomed Sue Campo onto the Janus Board of Directors a few months ago. Originally from Montana, Sue has lived in the Portland Metropolitan Area for 28 yrs. She loves spending time with family, enjoys the outdoors, and the arts and culture that our greater community offers.

What inspired you to join the Janus Board?

I became familiar with Janus Youth Programs a number of years ago from a bank colleague who joined the Janus Board of Directors. Through him, I learned about the mission of Janus Youth Programs and became inspired with the great outreach Janus provides to the growing number of at-risk youth in the communities Janus serves. When my colleague rotated off the Janus Board of Directors, he encouraged me to join. I jumped at the opportunity because I am concerned about the future of our youth. Homelessness in Oregon is at crisis levels, and Janus is a leader in improving and reducing youth homelessness. I hope to make a difference and ease the path for those less fortunate. By keeping at-risk kids safe and sheltered from the influences of life on the streets and the many risks present--sex trafficking, drug and alcohol use, education avoidance-- the better off this population of young people will be. And these efforts will benefit our communities long-term for future generations.

What do you bring to the Board of Directors?

I have worked for a variety of large and small organizations, with experience in finance, IT, human resources, and operations. I have spent most of my career in banking, which is not unlike most businesses in terms of operating challenges, and I am currently the CFO for The Bank of Oswego. I am hoping that these skills and my experience can benefit Janus Youth Programs in my role on the Board.

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.
