Lavette Lacy talks about Food Works, a program of the Janus Youth Program. Lavette and her colleagues are selling beautiful vegetables at the Portland Farmers Market every Saturday morning through the summer.
Janus Youth Programs has been changing lives and building futures for children, youth and families in Oregon and Washington since 1972.
From residential treatment programs, the Northwest's largest array of runaway and homeless youth services, alternative education classrooms, a detention program, a teen parenting program, a college scholarship program, and a 85,000 square foot urban agriculture program addressing hunger and employment issues, Janus is committed to delivering innovative community-based programs.
Reaching nearly 36,000 children, youth and families yearly, Janus Youth Programs is one of the largest nonprofits in the Northwest committed to delivering programs that change lives and build futures.
