Boys & Girls Aid

Building Connections for a Lifetime

Boys & Girls Aid works to secure lifelong connections for every child in Oregon. Regardless of age or background, we believe children belong in families that are permanent and stable. While every child deserves a family, not every child has a family. From age 0 to 23, we have a focus on one of Oregon’s most at-risk populations. It is our mission to make sure every child in foster care has a lifelong adult connected to their future.


Attend an upcoming training

Boys & Girls Aid is offering a training for attachment in adoption. The two part training will discuss adult attachment styles, build concrete skills in developing attachment for children adopted out of foster care, and help participants to view behaviors through an attachment lens.
