Things are really f*cked up right now. And here on Clinton Corner, we're doing our bit to make things better.
Every Monday night, come to the Clinton Street Theater, enjoy a film on the big screen (the way it should be seen!), make friends, have a few laughs, scream, cry and raise money for a good cause.
Tonight's nonprofit recipient is JANUS YOUTH PROGRAMS.
Janus Youth Programs is a leader in creating innovative, community-based services which enhance the quality of life for children, youth, and families. We work in partnership with others to create a safe and healthy community.
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, they 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.
Crystal is a miraculous rush of innovation and storytelling patience, and, in the last 25 years, the film has grown from a 1982 misfire, to a cult wonder, to a bona-fide classic that's timeless in stature and masterful in execution.
