Mission Statement

Girls Hope helps academically capable and motivated children-in-need to meet their full potential and become women for others by providing value centered, family-like homes, opportunities and education through college.

Description

Girls Hope provides a well-balanced, nurturing home and quality education through college for academically capable girls. We serve children between the ages of 10-18 who are at risk due to poverty, neglect or harmful neighborhood conditions.

We give girls a foundation for success by addressing their basic needs and providing enriching opportunities that build confidence and self-esteem. Our focus on academic achievement through college creates a strong foundation that builds a future of hope and opportunity for our girls. Our full-time house parents and other staff serve as role models by providing guidance, discipline and love, instilling values, and encouraging respect and compassion.

Founded in 1990, we were the first Girls Hope established in the U.S. and a model for developing other Girls Hope programs across the nation. We provide two stable, family-like homes, each accommodating eight full-time residents, while also serving as a home base for several Girls Hope college students.

Girls Hope of Pittsburgh provides services and employment in a nondiscriminatory manner without regard to an individual's race, color, sex, age, religious creed, national origin, ancestry or disability.
