How We Allocated Our Funds for Services to Children 7%

Dear Friends,

34%

It is my honor to update you on the activities of Boys & Girls Aid this past fiscal year (2007-2008), and I am grateful for the opportunity to thank the generous individuals, families, and businesses that have made our work possible. It is an unusual time to reflect on the recent past, as each of us looks anxiously to the future – to an economy in distress, to politics in transition, and to a growing number of children in need of our help. But as I try to answer the question of what lies in the days ahead, I find the past is my best barometer. As you will see in this Annual Report, fiscal year 2007-2008 brought us many successes. Newly awarded government contracts will allow us to serve 400 additional children this coming year. Two newly purchased shelter facilities extended our reach in the community. Adoption services expanded with clinicians now located across the state and in Washington.

The values that made these accomplishments possible are the same as those set forth by Boys & Girls Aid founders. Values like “always do what is best for the child,” and “spend wisely,” have steered us well for more than 120 years. I believe that if we continue to use these values as a point of guidance we will affect the greatest impact on the lives of children in need.

Success Stories Through Boys & Girls Aid Piper left home at sixteen. But on a rainy Friday in February, she graduated from our Pettygrove Residential program and went home with her mom for the first time in nearly two years. Sitting with Piper, we sip bottled water and chat about a faux-leather bomber jacket she’s been eyeing. She laughs outright when asked about getting her driver’s license. That particular milestone can wait – Piper has achieved plenty in the past six months. Last Friday, she walked at her high school graduation and her application to the University of Oregon is on its way in the mail. Passing the afternoon with this bright, articulate, young person, it’s hard to align her chaotic past with her promising future. Homelessness, arrest, anger and defiance – like many of the young women in our Pettygrove program, Piper’s past is filled with these themes. When asked about how her life changed trajectory, Piper speaks freely about the Pettygrove Residential program. Referencing a favorite piece of art she made while staying at Pettygrove, Piper explains the elements of the program that helped her transform her future. “The head here represents the program and the people that are helping kids. They are blowing all these things into us – compassion, patience, strength – and instilling these things into us so we can grow up and become women.” Piper stayed just under nine months in our Pettygrove Residential program. In this program, girls who are in the custody of the Oregon Youth Authority live together cooperatively under the supervision of our trained staff. Girls receive group and individual counseling and develop the skills they need to end a cycle of destructive behavior and move towards a successful future. When asked about her future, and the role our Pettygrove Residential program played in her young life, Piper is hopeful. “Being here taught me that you are influenced by what’s around you, by your environment. People can get sent to a lockdown facility but there you’re not gonna get the things that you get at Pettygrove, you’re just gonna get locked in a cell and that doesn’t help. At Pettygrove you’re meeting friends, learning skills, learning how to be in a community, having opportunities like this to tell our story and to make art and that’s really important.”

Ashley was just seventeen and still finishing high school when she learned that she was pregnant. At first, she considered parenting her expected infant. But after careful consideration, Ashley decided she was not prepared. At Boys & Girls Aid, Ashley met Karen, one of our adoption counselors. Together they talked about the kind of family in which Ashley wanted her child to grow up. Ashley hoped for a family that would be willing to develop a relationship with her throughout the pregnancy. She also asked for an unconventional family. She described her perfect family as “out of the box.” The Mitchells were a natural match. An artistic, creative, professional family, the Mitchells shared Ashley’s desire for an ongoing relationship. Months before the baby’s birth, Ashley and the Mitchells began seeing each other. They shared trips to the pre-natal clinic and visited each other’s homes. When baby Nathan was born in the spring, the Mitchells camped out throughout the labor in the hospital waiting room. Today, Ashley and the Mitchells continue to keep in touch with a very open, mutually supportive relationship. Ashley joined the Mitchells for Nathan’s first Halloween and when Ashley walked at her high school graduation, the Mitchells were there in the audience, cheering her on.
