Boys Hope Girls Hope’s Residential program recreates the family atmosphere and dynamic that is central to healthy adolescent development. Our residential scholars live in homes—not institutions, but real homes in safe neighborhoods.

Six to twelve children live in each home, where they are cared for by live-in, round-the-clock professional Residential Counselors who provide the parenting that all children need.

In Boys Hope Girls Hope homes, children become part of a family. Older scholars become big brothers and sisters to younger ones. Scholars share chores, do homework together, attend religious services together, eat together, and grow up together.
