MISSION
Boys Hope Girls Hope’s mission is to nurture and guide motivated young people in need to become well educated, career-ready men and women for others.


 

ABOUT
Boys Hope Girls Hope New Orleans addresses the two greatest needs that local, at-risk youth face: the need for a stable home environment and a strong academic foundation. It operates two family-like homes in Mid-City; each provides a loving, long-term home for eight children and four live-in staff. Promising young people enter the program as early as eight years old, continuing through high school and college graduation. Ultimately, the program strives for each scholar to graduate from college, break the cycle of generational poverty, and become thriving men and women within their communities.
More than 250 children have called Boys Hope Girls Hope home over the last 41 years. The program’s scholars attend private, college preparatory schools and six collegians are currently in universities across the country.
