Boys & Girls Aid

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.

Agency highlights:

  • 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 Program.
  • 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 sibling group.
  • Boys & Girls Aid Special Needs services include orientation, adoptive parent weekend training, assistance obtaining criminal background clearances, completion of the home study, coordination and support during matching process, and preparation for DHS committee presentation.
  • Our in-house post-adoption services provide support for all members of the adoption triad for a lifetime.
  • For infant adoption, we provide services to birth parents as well as adoptive families.  A separate clinician works with the birthmother and adoptive family to ensure the needs and wishes of each party are well represented.
  • Birthmother services include: counseling; paid expenses; support prior, during, and post adoption.
  • Infant adoption services are statewide, supported by clinicians throughout the state.
