OUR MISSION The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Lane County is to benefit all youth ages 6-18 by inspiring and enabling them to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring individuals. Over 500 area youth are served annually with over 100 daily visits and 50% of our members living in low income homes. No child is refused membership due to economic status. THE CLUB AND ITS MEMBERS Our Club operates on a year-round basis. By providing programs after school, on weekends, during the summer and school vacation periods, we build the trust of our youth, enabling them to depend on the Club and its activities. A wide range of adult-supervised activities and services are offered, all for a minimal $25 annual fee. If for some reason the youth of their family can not provide the annual fee, scholarships are available. No youngster is ever turned away for…
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) provides a powerful voice for abused and neglected children in Lane County. CASA volunteers work to prevent children from being re-abused by facilitating their move through the court and child protective services systems as quickly as possible into safe, permanent homes. When abused and neglected children are removed from their homes, they are placed in overburdened court and child welfare systems where they can slip through the cracks and risk continued abuse or neglect. Court Appointed Special Advocates – or CASA volunteers – have the power to prevent this tragic reality. Court Appointed Special Advocates are volunteer community members committed to keeping children safe. They are trained, supported, and sworn in by a judge to advocate in court for an abused child with an uncertain future.

Across the country and in our community, teachers and school nurses have found that in many instances, Monday morning comes and they are forced to compete against hunger for the attention of their students. More than 18 million children qualify for free or reduced price meals through the National School Lunch Program, the fuel they need to get them through the week. What happens to these children when they go home over the weekend? Hungry and homeless children are a reality in our community. When kids come to school on Mondays hungry, they are often listless, agitated and it is difficult for them to focus on learning. Children’s Health Watch states “children who struggle with hunger are likely to be sick more often, to recover from illness more slowly, and to be hospitalized more frequently.” The Harvard School Breakfast Research Summary tells us “children who regularly do not get…
