For those who want to help: Boys and Girls is Lobbying for Increased Funding for Homeless & Runaway Youth Services

At last month’s luncheon, Monica Ford (the director of the Nest Program) mentioned that Boys & Girl Aid is currently engaging in lobbying for increased funding for homeless and runaway youth services across Oregon.  There have been a few members asking Megan for more information, and so we are including it here.
Yes, it is true.  Boys & Girls Aid is currently engaged in advocacy work with the Oregon Alliance of Children's Programs (OACP) for increased funding for services for runaway & homeless youth across the state.   Boys and Girls Aid is requesting that funding be allocated to the Joint Ways & Means Health & Human Services Sub-Committee. It is estimated that there are 4.2 million youth and young adults in America who have experienced some form of homelessness during a 12-month period. In 2016-2017 Oregon was tied for the highest rate of child & youth homelessness; the other states were Nevada, California and District of Columbia.

We are asking if Cypress Auxiliary members wish to help with this, you can either call and/or email the members of the committee.  Please do this as soon as you can.  We don't have very long to make this personal plea to this committee:
