At Cambia, our commitment to building healthier communities ties back to our company’s founding 100 years ago. To honor our heritage, we set aside the entire month of August as a Month of Giving. Across the company’s four states, employees are volunteering their time to help support the communities where they work and live. During the Month of Giving we are highlighting stories about how our employees volunteer their time, why they do it and the impact it has.
Cambia Health Solutions’ Vice President and Chief of Staff Janet Campbell grew up in Kenya, one of five children, to loving parents. Her father died when she was just five years old, putting pressure on her mother to solely provide financially for her family. While there were struggles, Janet clearly recalls her mother’s greatest gift to them; she infused in her and her siblings a sense of hope, dignity and purpose. A gift, that Janet has said, is unmatched. Without it, she wouldn’t be where she is today.
There are children in Oregon that have lost both parents, and need a loving, supportive home, as well as a village of elders to hand down wisdom, and foster a sense of community. Bridge Meadows, the organization Janet volunteers to serve, builds that village, fostering communities for children without parents, passing down that life-changing sense of hope, dignity and purpose she received as a child.
Recently Janet was interviewed on the Portland Radio Project to share more about an exciting new Bridge Meadows move-in ready community site opening August 31st, and the great work they’re accomplishing for community members in need. Listen to her interview here or with the player below:
