Fostering Futures

When like-minded people come together, good things happen


 

Boys & Girls Aid hosted two Fostering Futures luncheons—at the Sentinel Hotel in Portland April 30 and at NW Events in Hillsboro May 18—for 287 guests. More than $144,000 was raised to connect Oregon foster care children with permanent, stable, loving families.

 

Guest speakers included:

 

  • Chris, a young business owner, husband, and new father who, after 13 foster care homes, aged out of the foster care system without a family of his own to guide him into adulthood
  • Rhonda, a mother who explained the trust and control challenges her 11-year-old daughter still faces after being abandoned by her birth mother at a bus station

Thank you to all attendees, Board of Directors, Board of Ambassadors, table captains, and our generous sponsors for making this years Fostering Futures a record breaking success. Through your support kids in foster care can have the bright futures they deserve.
