We Are

We Are

Trellis was established in 2010 by Julia Ansberry and is based in Oregon City, Oregon.

What is Trellis?

We are more than just a rapidly growing company, more than a lifeline, more than an inspiration to those who need inspiration the most. We are a vast and ever expanding community, we are a tribe, a giant family with a singular goal: to give life. What does it mean to give life? It means that in the last year alone Trellis has helped over 105 people achieve their best potential and become thriving members of society, and were not even close to getting started.

Your success is our business and we take our business very seriously. After 7 years we have accumulated the most reliable skills trainers, job coaches, and employment specialists in the state of Oregon. We are constantly learning new and innovative methods to support our clients in a way that guarantees success. We have developed a system that is both fluid and organized, and it works. Furthermore, we are a stubborn folk, we are resilient, and we refuse to give up on your dreams and aspirations.

Our staff is made up of caring and compassionate individuals who strive to make a better world. Every one of them is unique. They each have a special skill set and based on their strengths we are able to match our employees with our customers to ensure a tailored experience. At Trellis we believe in encouragement, direction, and developing independence. These three ingredients are in everything that we do.

No matter who you are Trellis will change your life.

And that's an understatement.

Julia Ansberry - Director

I have a long history of teaching independent living skills and empowerment abilities through my personal and professional life. Being able to believe in your abilities and then move forward has been my mantra and I try to bring that to my staff, clients and family. We are the creators of our life story my history includes, so why not make it a good one!

Growing up in a small town in Wyoming surrounded by prairie grass and antelopes makes me grateful for living in Portland the last 23 years with a plethoria of outdoor activities, trees, lots of green and great food! I am always looking for something to do and a way to do it and try to share this with my staff and clients!

Starting Trellis has been one of my greatest achievements, next to being married for over 27 years and raising three amazing children! This company has provided challenges, personal growth and the most amazing joy than I would have expected. I am grateful each day to be surrounded with talented, awesome people and clients that are growing and reaching goals! It’s a good place to be.
