About Us

Mission Statement

Our mission is to help 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.

About Us

Boys Hope Girls Hope is a nationally operated non-profit. Since 1977, Boys Hope Girls Hope has been a college preparatory and life enrichment program that serves academically motivated youth in situations of significant need. All of our students come from families living at or below the poverty line, and all of our collegians are the very first in their families to go to college.

Boys Hope Girls Hope of San Francisco Bay Area, an Affiliate of the National Organization, was established in 2000 and, while following the policies and guidelines of the national BHGH model, operates as a separate organization. As such, our program and outreach reflects the social, cultural and spiritual diversity of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Through our community-based program, we provide academic support and enrichment through a nurturing and structured environment as well as consistent and comprehensive care. This approach maximizes their chances for a successful journey to -- and through -- college.

We believe by providing children with holistic arms-around care, safe environments, a first-class education, and opportunities to learn more about themselves and the world, we prepare students for college, career, and life.
