About Us

Building Blocks 4 Kids was founded in 2010 with the goal of helping foster and disadvantaged youth participate in extracurricular activities outside of the home and school.

By providing the means for these children to get involved in something they are passionate about, they are more likely to:
Increase their self-esteem
Stay in school
Graduate from high school
Attend post high school education
Become active, involved members of their communities
Understand people truly care about them as an individual

Relying solely on the work of volunteers, BB4Kids depends on the support and generosity of its donors, sponsors and volunteers. Most of our volunteers work full time jobs while giving numerous hours of their free time to run this organization and its programs.

Since the inception of our From Wish to Reality scholarship program in 2010, we have helped Oregon youths in Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington counties enjoy such activities as:
Football, basketball, baseball, soccer
Music lessons, ballet, dance, karate
Science camp
Outdoor school

Our Aging Out of Foster Care program came to fruition in late 2016. The program focuses on those who have turned 18 and are subsequently dropped from the foster care system. BB4Kids is committed to helping these young adults transition into becoming contributing members of the community by providing job training, educational support, rental assistance and household goods in order for them to remain independent and free from becoming a statistic on the homeless roles.
