Boys & Girls
Boys & Girls Aid began in 1885 and remains as the
oldest adoption and child welfare agency in Oregon. Over 17,000
adoptions have been completed since the agency was founded. We are a
non-profit organization licensed to provide adoption services in Oregon
and Washington. Boys & Girls Aid is a founding member of the
Child Welfare League of America. As one of the few Oregon agencies
accredited by them, we are held to a higher standard than the State of
Oregon’s licensing requirements.
- We are committed to finding families for children, not children for
families. This subtle distinction is important, as we place the
highest priority on what is in the child’s best interest.
- Adoptive families may choose to adopt through: our private infant
program; our special needs program, which is the adoption of a child
from the state foster care system; or enroll in our Dual Track
- For special needs adoption, our adoption clinicians work with
families to become certified and matched with waiting Oregon children in
Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, Yamhill and Marion counties.
- Families adopting through our special needs program pay a flat rate
for services. Assistance is available, through the state of Oregon
DHS, to both offset the fees and also to assist with additional
financial support following the placement and adoption of a child or
