Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The success of Boys Hope Girls Hope is based upon one simple truth: children who have a stable, happy and permanent home life are much more likely to succeed in school and adulthood.
Boys Hope Girls Hope of Southern California is affiliated with the international organization BOYS HOPE GIRLS HOPE. BOYS HOPE GIRLS HOPE currently operates a national network of 39 BOYS HOPE GIRLS HOPE homes in 16 U.S. cities and three foreign countries. Founded in 1975, BOYS HOPE GIRLS HOPE is a privately funded, non-profit organization that works to make a profound impact in the lives our determined young people. Our approach is unique and holistic providing abused, neglected, and at-risk children who have demonstrated academic potential with four critical ingredients for success: Homes, Opportunities, Parental role models, and Education. We opened our first home in Southern California for boys in 1991. Our second home, Girls Hope, followed in 1996.
