Mission Statement

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

Description

We Provide H.O.P.E.

Homes

We offer valued-entered and family-style homes in residential neighborhoods. Our children follow structured routines of a daily schedule, including hygiene, chores, meals, school and study, play, reflection, and community building activities.

Opportunities

Our children are challenged to become mature, healthy, and educated 'persons for others'. They are offered opportunities to nurture and develop their intellectual, physical, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being. This means extra-curricular activities, Boys Hope Girls Hope enrichment outings, community service projects, structured study times, tutoring and counseling when needed, weekend worship, jobs, internships, and more.

Parenting

Our residential counselors offer positive parenting to our kids and participatory partnership with their families. Regularly scheduled family visits are arranged, case conferences are held, and major decision-making is done with the families.

Education

Our kids attend quality, college-preparatory schools because one of our goals for them is a college education. To assist them in reaching this goal, they receive training in organization, study habits, and life skills. Our children are currently attending St. Bede's Elementary, Mercy High School, University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy, and Brother Rice High School. We also support them financially and emotionally through college.

I started my service year January 2007 and 2.5 years later, have yet to leave. My contract was up Jan 2008 and I still visit them at least once a week. They have become a very important part of my lives and I couldn't imagine never involving them in my lives. Its hard work but it lasts a lifetime.
