Changing Lives. Building Futures.
We change the lives of 6,000 youth every year through our 40 programs in Oregon and Washington.
Youth who have runaway or are homeless. Youth who have been trafficked for sex. Teen parents and youth living in low-income neighborhoods.
When you provide youth opportunities to build successful futures, our entire community benefits. Help be part of their success.
Because of Janus,
youth will have a safe place to sleep tonight
Every year we provide more than
meals to homeless youth

U.S. Senator Ron Wyden congratulated Janus Youth Programs for receiving a $94,566 award from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive (FINI) Grant Program. FINI grants support projects to increase the purchase of fruits and vegetables to low-income consumers participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) by providing incentives at the point of purchase. Village Gardens, who operates several successful community food projects in low-income North Portland neighborhoods, will administer the Peninsula Incentive Project. According to Senator Wyden, “I was thrilled to learn that Janus Youth Programs earned this grant, which will ensure that more low-income individuals and families will have access to nutritious food right in their community. With so many families worrying about where their next meal will come from, this is welcomed news that should be celebrated.”
