One of our goals at BHGH is to provide a stable, family-like home for children who have faced a variety of challenging obstacles. Having a set, family style dinner each night is just one of the many ways we do that. Hosting dinner in our residential homes is a wonderful opportunity to engage with our scholars and staff to gain a deeper understanding of who we are and the wonderful kids we serve, and give our youth the important opportunity to interact and learn about others.
