Overcoming Adversity

As a community development initiative, we work across boundaries to remove barriers and develop human potential. No political agenda. No jurisdictional constraints. We are free to support the powerful will of individuals with life-altering information and skills.

Cultivating Diversity

The old adage “knowledge is power” is an idea we believe in and build upon every day at Jannus EO. By providing skilled and motivated individuals with access  to information, tools and resources, we not only help them increase their knowledge of finance and its impacts, we empower them to grow, succeed and thrive.

Fostering Independence

Using both individual and group learning environments, we teach, train and transform lives through knowledge and support. Individuals and families are equipped with missing elements from their social and educational tool-kits. With these missing tools in hand, the opportunity to grow and thrive is possible like never before.

Navigating Complexity

We draw people together in support of their neighbors and new arrivals, weaving together missing connections in the fabric of community. This intentional social integration reduces the impact of critical gaps in funding, responsibility and action that negatively impact individuals, families and communities.

Making Connections

Support is the backbone of our Mission at Jannus EO. We connect people to caring and compassionate individuals, groups and organizations with the dedication and experience to help people from all walks of life achieve success and thrive.

Supporting Dreams

From family stability to business dreams, Jannus EO empowers people to succeed and live the lives they want.

When individuals gain the economic survival skills and support they have previously lacked, they gain more than just information. They gain power and confidence that drives them to succeed and thrive in ways that impact the entire community.
