About Us

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

Boys Hope Girls Hope provides resources, opportunities and support to Denver’s disadvantaged children at risk from exposure to drug abuse, poverty or neglect in their homes or communities.

As a resource to caring families who are unable to meet their child’s needs, Boys Hope Girls Hope partners with parents to provide a comprehensive prevention alternative, offering a long-term continuum of support to equip each child with the tools, opportunity and access they need to attend college. Each scholar’s success in a rigorous, competitive academic program is a cornerstone of this effort. Personalized academic support, one-on-one counseling, mentorship and a consistently safe and nurturing residential environment optimizes each scholar’s ability to achieve their full potential and develop the skills necessary to be successful in college and in life.

Founded on the belief that a loving God cares about the life of every individual, Boys Hope Girls Hope acts in accordance with the following values:

Education is critical to reaching one’s full potential.

Spirituality and an active faith-life are essential elements of healthy personal development.

Children have the capacity to transcend their circumstances if given a safe environment, opportunities, and loving support.

Integrity, honesty, respect, a willingness to love, and service to others are important measures of personal success.

Individuals are responsible for their destinies and actions, and all children deserve the guidance, support and opportunities to choose a path to reaching their full potential.

Respect for the dignity, value, unique perspectives, and talents of every individual is the foundation of positive social and emotional development, as well as strong and vibrant communities.
