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.

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.
