Our core purpose at Boys & Girls Aid is to impact the well-being of children in need. We believe the best way to do this is through our Permanency Initiative. Our goal is to have every child, teen and young adult we serve exit our care to a lifelong connection. We hope to reach this goal by 2030, but we can’t do it alone. Donate today.
