Boys & Girls Aid

annual report

letter from the President & CEO Dear Friends, As we give thanks in this new year, we are so grateful to have had a year full of growth and innovation at Boys & Girls Aid. After 127 years serving Oregon’s children, we have had time to reflect on who we are and what is most important and necessary for the children we serve. We have been able to give thanks for the opportunities to impact the well-being of children in need. As an Agency, we believe that families raise children, not systems. We believe that no matter what a child has experienced, each one deserves a family or lifelong permanent connection. We believe that no child should exit a system of care without a permanent connection. Whether these connections come through adoption, reunification with family, or even through new relationships - they will offer stability, guidance and emotional support for a lifetime. These beliefs guide the work done at Boys & Girls Aid every day. We have created a Permanency Initiative that promises every child we serve will have the opportunity to exit our care with permanent relationships. We define Permanency as a life-long commitment between and with children and adults. We know these lifelong commitments will create guidance, stability and emotional support. Ultimately, Boys & Girls Aid is committed to preparing, advocating and finding resources for youth that enable them to experience positive outcomes and life-long relationships with caring adults. We understand that every child’s needs differ, but the common factor that brings them together is the need for permanent connections. Our goal by 2030 is that every child will exit our care to a permanent lifelong relationship. This newsletter gives several examples of where the Promise of Permanency is making a significant difference. As an Agency we are thinking differently, no longer are we a triage center but the catalyst for change as we seek a plan for every child. This goal is not an easy one but its importance is enormous. As our friends and supporters, we strive to keep you informed partners in our work. Please know that I, and any members of our Board or Executive Team, value your questions and are open for discussion on this important work. Thank you for your continued investment in impacting the well-being of children in need. Warmest Regards, Michael H. Balter President & CEO

Julia, a TLP client transitioning to independence On the outside, Julia’s life appeared to be perfect. To her classmates and teachers, it seemed like she was always provided with everything she ever wanted or needed. But as it sometimes happens, things can be different than they appear. As far back as Julia can remember, life at home was extremely difficult with her father. It seemed that he was always angry with her, her brother or her mother. For years, Julia just dealt with the situation at home. But when she turned 15, something clicked and she decided she was not going to let her dad treat her that way any longer. This only made things worse. Eventually, Julia decided she would leave home. She spent months staying on friends’ couches. She knew this was not a great long-term plan because she still had so many things she wanted to accomplish in life. That is when she found out about the Transitional Living Program (TLP). She moved into one of the program’s apartments and started actively engaging in everything TLP had to offer. The program’s staff knew right away that Julia was going to be a driven client. Julia is thriving in the program. Now, at the age of 18, she is completing her pre-med classes at a local university, excelling at chemistry and math and has a job tutoring at Portland Community College. Julia is also healing by learning healthy ways to deal with her anger and re-building a relationship with her mother.

Oregon Heart Gallery by Boys & Girls Aid Every child needs a loving, supportive and nurturing family. Yet, many Oregon children are still looking for their permanent home; they now live in the state’s foster care system. The Oregon Heart Gallery by Boys & Girls Aid is here to help them. The mission of the Oregon Heart Gallery is to inspire people to open their hearts and provide permanent loving homes to children in foster care. To accomplish its mission, the Gallery displays professionally photographed portraits that capture the spirit and personality of children awaiting adoption. Professional photographers generously donate their time to take the photos and then Pro Photo Supply in Portland, Oregon, donates the high-quality printed photo displays.

Since its official launch in February 2007, the Gallery has visited more than 15 cities and communities, and has been featured in shopping malls, businesses, government buildings, churches and performing arts centers. In June 2011, Boys & Girls Aid acquired the Oregon Heart Gallery. The Gallery includes a permanent display of photographs at Pioneer Place in Portland, Oregon, and traveling displays that are showcased throughout the state of Oregon. These displays help us to recruit for each child in a unique waybettering their opportunity for adoption.

finding connections Jenny was already a single mom of two children when she found out she was pregnant. With no support from the baby’s birth father and one child with special needs, Jenny knew she could not be the best parent to any of her children if she brought another child into her home. That is when she came to Boys & Girls Aid. After discussions with her adoption clinician and time to process her thoughts, Jenny chose to move forward with an adoption plan. Considering the needs of the three children, Jenny questioned if an open adoption was in her family’s best interest. With this in her mind she began to look at adoptive family profile books. When she saw Terry and Rita’s profile something clicked. Jenny knew instantly that this was the family to parent her baby. While both the couple and Jenny had the normal apprehension about open adoption, they agreed to meet. Jenny and her two children spent the day with Terry and Rita along with their respective adoption clinicians eating out, going to a museum and getting to know each other. At the end of the day, it was clear that a strong bond was beginning to develop. Both sides recognized that an open adoption would be meaningful and beneficial for everyone. When little Hannah was born in June, there was a waiting room full of supportive immediate, extended, birth and adoptive family excited to welcome her into the world. Both families have found that the open adoption has created a deep connection they couldn’t imagine not having. And most importantly, this connection will have a positive impact on Hannah’s life.

Lucia, a Pettygrove client her story of success Lucia's life before Pettygrove can easily be described as chaotic and unstable. The 17-yearold admits things were hard for her and her family of six brothers and sisters, but there was always love. Lucia's parents worked as seasonal farming employees at vineyards and farms across Oregon. This meant the family was often moving from place to place. As Lucia was the oldest in the family, she was often left responsible for her younger siblings. The pressure of the situation eventually got to Lucia and she began rebelling against responsibilities and her parent’s rules. She disregarded family obligations and started dating a guy that was several years older than her. Lucia's new boyfriend and group of friends were involved in illegal activities, and after a couple run-ins with the police, Lucia entered Pettygrove. At first, Lucia didn't believe that she was meant to be at Pettygrove. But as she moved through the program's levels, she began to realize that she had a lot of anger inside about the grownup responsibilities that had been placed on her at an early age. Youth care counselors at Pettygrove worked with Lucia to help her understand and process her feelings, while also re-establishing a bond with her parents. Lucia's mother and father were committed to Lucia's care and growth, and were active in family counseling. The caring environment of Pettygrove, coupled with Lucia's capacity for growth and her family's love for her, has helped Lucia successfully complete the program and return home. Lucia is now looking forward to finishing high school and considering her options for college.

Building Futures Capital Campaign Beginning in September 2008, Boys & Girls Aid embarked on a capital campaign, Building Futures - Staying Here to Get There. The campaign was created for acquisition and renovation of a new home that would be used for the Pettygrove Residential Program. We are please to announce that as of late September 2012, the campaign and the renovation of the new Pettygrove home are complete. Most importantly, the young women of the Pettygrove Program have moved into the home and are thriving as a result of generous investments of time and resources from our community. We would like to express our multitude of thanks to those who helped make this project possible and a huge success. Significant contributions from foundations, corporate and individual donors, our Board of Directors, our volunteer Auxiliaries and community volunteer groups are who made this Campaign a new home a reality. We are grateful for your investments and dedication.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead
