We Believe in Second Chances

Many Janus programs
are regarded as best
practice models and
have been replicated
both in and out of the
United States

Since originating in 1972 as a Multnomah County demonstration project providing residential care for adolescents struggling with homelessness and drug abuse, Janus Youth Programs has provided a second chance for at-risk youth with few resources, and no place to turn for help.

Today, we have grown to become one of the largest nonprofits in the Northwest operating more than 40 different programs that span Oregon and Washington. An organizational philosophy grounded in collaboration defines who we are and everything we do.

A 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation, Janus is independently audited and meets or exceeds reporting requirements on all of its funding contracts. Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, 88¢ of every dollar contributed goes directly into our nationally recognized programs.
