Our Mission

Boys and Girls Aid’s goals are to strengthen the role of adults in the lives of children; provide safe, stable living environments; and advocate for the needs of Oregon’s children. Simply, Boys & Girls Aid’s core purpose is to impact the well-being of children in need.

At Cypress Branch, members impact the well-being of children by:

  • Educating the membership and the Charbonneau community about the work of Boys & Girls Aid through monthly meetings and articles in The Villager.
  • Planning fundraising events, such as “The Dinner,” to benefit Boys & Girls Aid.
  • Providing special moments for the children through giving holiday sports bags, Spring Baskets, skills training and monthly homemade dinners for the youth in residential care.
  • Creating a community that cares about fellowship and strengthening the lives and relationships between our members.

The By-Laws of the Cypress Branch Auxiliary of Boys and Girls Aid is available in the “Membership Directory”.
