Janus Hosts Fifth Annual Dinner In The Vines

(Janus Board Member Tom Fink)

Clouds, wind and the threat of rain couldn’t keep away 154 excited guests at the fifth annual Dinner In The Vines held August 29 at ArborBrook Vineyards in Newberg, Oregon. For the first time the event was held under a tent, a beautiful addition to the ambiance and protection from the elements as our attendees enjoyed some of the best food and wine the Northwest has to offer all while supporting the youth and programs of Janus.

Chef Jenn Louis of Lincoln Restaurant, Sunshine Tavern and Culinary Artistry, prepared an exquisite four-course dinner and Dave and Mary Hansen, owners of ArborBrook Vineyards, paired each course with an ArborBrook wine.

This event would not have been possible without the generous support of ArborBrook Vineyards, Chef Jenn Louis, our corporate sponsors and all 154 guests! Thank you for your contributions to this wonderful evening.

View Documentary, “Perception: From Prison To Purpose”

Please join us on Wednesday, October 17, 2018 to view the documentary, "Perception: From Prison to Purpose" featuring former Hope Partnership youth, Noah Schultz. Noah, a graduate of the Hope Partnership program, served 7.5 years in the custody of the Oregon Youth Authority (OYA). According to Noah, the film shows that any kid is capable of committing a crime. "Usually a decision to commit a crime is a manifestation of a lot of hurt from one’s past. By sharing my own story, I tried to help viewers understand how these kids end up in correctional facilities. Given the right resources, they can change their trajectory."

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.
