From Boys & Girls Aid:

At Boys & Girls Aid, we believe that all children deserve loving, caring adults in their lives and a safe place to sleep at night. To see this happen, we offer a variety of programs.

  • We find permanent homes for children through adoption.
  • We provide temporary safe places to stay through shelters and foster homes.
  • And we teach skills for life to at-risk youth.

In each of our programs, we believe that children play an integral role in planning their own futures. Staff employ a positive youth development philosophy and work with each client to see that their particular needs are met.
