Riverside Golf and Country Club hosted the 2015 Herm Gilliam Memorial Golf Tournament for Kids earlier this month, welcoming 80 golfers to their beautiful course for a full day of golf, contests, auctions and awards.

In addition to raising funds to support the many services Janus Youth Programs provides to children, youth and families in Oregon and Southwest Washington, the tournament honors the memory of Herm Gilliam, a member of the Portland Trail Blazers 1976-77 NBA Championship Team. Herm was a longtime supporter of Janus and past board member.

Amidst steep competition, the McMenamins Edgefield took home the top trophy for the third year in a row. Congratulations to all the winning teams in this year’s tournament:

1st Low Gross – McMenamins Edgefield: Jeff Bryant, Jay Burk, Curt Morgan, DJ Simcoe
2nd Low Gross – The Standard #1: Blair Filuk, Randy Cater, Mike Walters, Chris Wolfe
1st Low Net – Friends of Herm Gilliam: Lloyd Neal, Adam Richard, Gary Pigg, Ron Weeden
2nd Low Net – The Standard #2: Greg Koleno, Marc Steinman, Drew Hedges, Ned Taylor

A special thank you to our sponsors for their support.

On May 17th, the Janus Board of Directors, staff and community members honored 15 youth in our programs who were recipients of our scholarship awards. Now in its sixteenth year, the scholarships open the door to education for our youth by helping to pay for school expenses such as tuition, books and rent.

This year’s scholarship recipients are from an array of Janus programs including Insights Teen Parent Program, Imani House, Changes, Annex I, Harry’s Mother and Hope Partnership. Special thanks to Robert Gootee and Moda Health for their support in launching the Scholarship Fund in 2001 and to Joanne Senders—a generous donor who established the Joanne Senders Scholarship Fund.

Youth Voices—In Their Own Words

My experience at Cordero House was one of the most significant events to have happened to me. Let me start with a background of who I am. I came from a small village in the countryside of El Salvador. At a young age, I learned to be independent, going to school and helping with the daily chores. I moved to the city for a very brief moment before flying to the U.S. At first, I felt strange and overwhelmed with everyone and everything around me. As time went by, I found myself in a state of confusion. Alone, I had no one to turn to ask for help. Instead, I did things that to this day I regret. Such events led to me spending time in a youth corrections facility.

Employee Spotlight—Angie Corll

Angie knows what it feels like to run away. She did it for years, running away from abusive and neglectful homes, opting for freedom and danger of the streets over security. This life on the run led her down many dark paths for years until she became the kid that no one wanted to take in. Finally, in 1993, with the help of her probation officer, she entered a Janus residential program. That was a turning point. Says Angie, “I was blessed to have been given a second chance.” Now she works as a Youth Care Specialist at our Oak Grove shelter in SW Washington, helping youth who are facing similar life crisis as she did. We talked to Angie to find out how her experiences has prepared her to serve our youth.
