    Foster Parent Info Session

    The need for foster parents in the Portland-metro area is great. But the rewards of fostering are even greater.

    On any given day, 8,000 youth are in Oregon's foster care system. Each year, youth enter foster care in need of stabilty, safety, and a renewed sense of belonging. As a Boys & Girls Aid foster parent, you will provide crucial support, shelter and healthy relationships.

We serve youth aged 4-21 in placements that can range from a few weeks to a few years.

    • Have at least one Oregon licensed driver in the home with a safe driving record

    Portlanders Stand with Refugees & Immigrants

    Please join us as we come together to welcome, honor, heal and celebrate.

    This will be a fun evening of LIVE STAGE PERFORMANCES about what it means to be a refugee, immigrant and Muslim in Portland. There will also be performances of different cultural music and dances. We hope that you will join in, but you are welcome to watch and mingle.

    We will have food carts on site serving throughout the evening. We invite you to have dinner here in the outdoor courtyard.

    We welcome all Portlanders, of all ages, especially refugee and immigrant families.

    This is not a fundraiser. There is no admission price.

    We are looking for volunteers to help make this event as great as possible. We hope to have volunteers who can set up (starting at 2:30) and volunteers who can help out during the event (6-9 pm), as well as volunteers who can tear down afterwards (staying approximately until 9:30). If you are interested in volunteering in any of these time slots, please contact Som Subedi at som.subedi@portlandoregon.gov
