Overview


Mission Statement

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

Background Statement

Boys Hope Girls Hope is a long-term housing and academic scholarship program for at-risk youth. Our organization provides up to eight years of family-style housing for children and teenagers between the ages of 10 and 18 in two boarding homes in Orange County, CA. We also give the children in our program scholarships to college preparatory high schools and universities of their choosing when they graduate. 
 
 In 1977, St. Louis career educator Paul Sheridan, SJ, founded Boys Hope Girls Hope to empower promising students in need. Recognizing the importance of caring for the “whole person,” his new program was accordingly holistic in scope: children were placed in non-institutional, family-style homes that recreated the family dynamic crucial to healthy development. Scholars, as children are officially referred to upon admission to Boys Hope Girls Hope, were painstakingly matched to, and placed in, college-preparatory programs in top-rated schools best suited to their needs. They were provided with counseling if necessary, matched with tutors for academic support and with mentors who shared life experience and personal guidance. They were expected to perform community service projects and to participate in a broad range of extracurricular activities. Finally, they were provided with academic, financial, and psychological support throughout college. Since its founding, Boys Hope Girls Hope has grown into an international organization with affiliates in 15 major U.S. cities and four programs in Latin America.
 

In 1991, Boys Hope Girls Hope of Southern California was established to offer underprivileged youth in Southern California an opportunity to break the cycle of disadvantage by providing them with a quality education and round-the-clock support.  In 1996, Boys Hope Girls Hope of Southern California was established.

  • Maintaining residences at their capacity level after graduating five seniors.

Programs


Boys Hope Girls Hope

 

Boys Hope Girls Hope is a long-term housing and academic scholarship program for at-risk youth. Our organization provides up to 8 years of family-style housing for children and teenagers between the ages of 10 and 18 in two boarding homes in Orange County. We also give the children in our program scholarships to college preparatory high schools and universities of their choosing.

  

The children in our program come from at-risk backgrounds associated with parental death/severe illness, poverty, homelessness, physical/emotional abuse, dangerous/violent neighborhoods, and/or other distressed living situations. Yet, they do not have behavioral/emotional issues or criminal records. Instead, they demonstrate high potential and the ability to succeed were it not for their debilitating environments and situations. These kids could be in the social system, but our program intervenes before that, partnering with parents/guardians to voluntarily remove a child from their care and place them with us.
 
Boys Hope Girls Hope gives these at-risk children everything they need to fulfill their potential: a stable home through their young adult life, scholarships to Mater Dei and Rosary High Schools, parenting from residential counselors, an academic tutor from the AmeriCorps Program, mentoring, transportation and scholarships to college. We provide up to 12 years of service so our children can recover from their situations, grow to fulfill their potential and become self-sufficient in adulthood through education.
 
Unlike other housing programs, we emulate the traditional family structure and put emphasis on education and long-term care. Where other homes act as emergency shelters, transitional living or housing for individuals with criminal records, Boys Hope Girls Hope provides a true home, nurturing environment, quality education and long-term stability. College is an expectation. We are the chance that children in debilitating situations need to overcome their adversities.

Program Short-Term Success 

To measure short‐term scholar outcomes and staff performance, we track students’ grades and progress throughout their middle and high school years in our case management software, ARMOR, and hold supervision meetings with program leadership and residential staff.

 

Student progress is recorded in ARMOR, our case management software. In ARMOR, each scholar has a “Service Plan,” which is an online portfolio with tabs for recording Personal Goals, Academic Goals, Grades, College Preparation Goals, Residential Life, Counseling, Physical Needs, Recreation, Community Service, Family Involvement, Medical Services, and Overall Adjustment to the Program. Residential Counselors are responsible for maintaining, monitoring, and recording progress on the physical, emotional, social, and academic development of scholars living in home, in accordance with individual scholar service plans and Boys Hope Girls Hope program policies.
Program Long-Term Success  The long-term success of our program continues to be measured by: (1) the percentage of scholars going to college upon high school graduation; and (2) our scholars’ rates of college enrollment and graduation. 
Program Success Monitored By 

Boys Hope Girls Hope employs an exhaustive system of quality assurance checks and standards – the Quality Performance Assessment Indicators (QPAI) – to ensure that our scholars are receiving the best care possible, that our funding is being used responsibly and effectively, and that every aspect of our program is performing according to our standards. 

We hold routine supervision and performance evaluation meetings with program leadership and staff to ensure quality operations. The ultimate goal of our program is that each child served reaches his or her full potential and becomes, in the words of our mission statement, “a person for others”— that they develop sensitivity to the plight of others and leave our program knowing the value of service.


Examples of Program Success 

A Case Study

Marchant’s mother committed suicide when he was 8. His father died in prison at 12. He went to live with his 88-year-old grandmother whose health was failing. Marchant found himself failing 7th grade and developing a rebellious attitude. Then one day a neighborhood family learned of Marchant’s situation and referred him to Boys Hope Girls Hope. Marchant was cared for by the program for 5 and a half years. While there it provided him the stable environment, education and nurturing to not only graduate high school, but to go to Southern Mississippi University on a full-ride, football scholarship. Marchant went on to play football professionally for the Arizona Cardinals and the Scottish Claymores in NFL Europe. His football days behind him now, Marchant works in Sales and supports his wife, Nikki, and 2 children, Grace and Max. He attributes his success to Boys Hope Girls Hope.

Our unique approach has had a profound, lifelong impact on its beneficiaries. Boys Hope Girls Hope alumni have had phenomenal success rates in college attendance, persistence, and graduation. Since 1991, nearly 100% of Boys Hope Girls Hope graduates in Southern California and in 14 other U.S. cities have gone on to college. Our ultimate measure of success is our scholars' attainment of a college degree. The most meaningful short-term outcome toward this goal is the rate of their college enrollment, or the degree to which our scholars remain engaged in a course of study.  We are proud to report that over 94% of Boys Hope Girls Hope collegians remain enrolled in college each year. By contrast, the national average of collegians with similar demographic backgrounds who will successfully complete college is less than 40%. With a proven ability to impact student outcomes, Boys Hope Girls Hope has been recognized by the Educational Policy Institute as a model program for helping children from disadvantaged backgrounds overcome disadvantages through long-term educational support.
