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.

Covers and Blankets Benefit Concert for Janus Youth

One snowy winter day, Christian Parkinson looked out his apartment window and reflected on his good fortune to be inside and warm. But as quickly as the snow fell, he realized that there were many people less fortunate, living out on the streets in the freezing cold. So he decided to do something to help. That was fourteen years ago when Christian started his “Covers and Blankets” fundraiser for Janus Youth. Each year in January, Christian organizes a benefit concert where a group of up to 300 people bring a donation of a blanket or warm clothing for Janus Youth while enjoying an evening of relaxing with friends and listening to live music performances.
