Parents/Guardians as Partners

Partnership with parents and guardians is essential to the Boys Hope Girls Hope program. Scholars who join the program are expanding their family to include us, and the best support systems include biological and adoptive families, BHGH staff, and mentors from the community.

Although Boys Hope Girls Hope of Colorado is not a traditional family service agency, many parents and guardians benefit from services provided by the program, including information on, and referral to, community resources, parenting guidance, crisis intervention and informal counseling.

As a parent or guardian, please contact for information regarding your relationship with and expectations from Boys Hope Girls Hope.

The first step is a referral.
