Boys & Girls Aid

We are committed to ensure every child grows up with a family of their own.

Boys & Girls Aid seeks safety and support for children in need through lifelong connections. The agency was founded in 1885.

What We Do

Boys & Girls Aid strives to find lifelong connections for children who face abuse and neglect. Founded in 1885, we continue to help Oregon's children find permanent homes through adoption, while providing temporary shelter for children in transition. Annually we serve over 1,500 children directly. We also educate and train many more child welfare professionals with innovative programs throughout the year.

Volunteers create a ripple effect of good in the world; they are the change makers, the people who believe one small act can make a big difference. Making meals, purchasing bikes, teaching dance lessons, and organizing fundraisers for children living in foster care are examples of how Boys & Girls Aid volunteers have recently helped children living in foster care. These acts help youth know they are important, they matter, and their community cares about them. You can make a difference in the lives of youth by volunteering with Boys & Girls Aid.
