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.

Employee Spotlight— Roy Spencer

Every night of the week, a crowd of youth line up to get into our downtown Portland shelter where they get a warm bed and meal for the night. Preparing for their arrival every day takes a lot of work, including cooking their dinner. We talked to Roy Spencer, Porchlight Shelter Supervisor, about his job which includes managing and cleaning the shelter, doing light maintenance work and feeding up to 70 homeless youth daily. In addition to performing all of those tasks, according to his supervisor, Dennis Lundberg, “Roy will always step in when the shelter is short-staffed, going the extra mile for the staff and youth we serve. For example, this week he is on call 24/7 for 14 days straight.” Roy has been working for Janus for over three years. A soft-spoken person with an easy smile, he has earned respect from his peers and youth.

​Next steps After Imani

This month, Christian Ford will graduate from Imani House, one of our residential treatment programs that help youth between the ages of 13 to 18 rebuild their lives. 18 year-old Christian, a soft-spoken youth, has plans for his life after Imani. Like so many of the youth we serve, his journey in getting to where he is today was filled with many challenges.
