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.

FAQs about Dinner Hosting:

  • Dinner is served at 6pm each night.
  • Please plan to prepare enough food for 9-11 people, not including yourself or your group. Due to limited spacing, we ask that you limit your group to no more than 3 or 4 people. There are 8 scholars at each Residential Home. Depending on the evening there will be 1-3 staff members present for dinner.
  • Dinner typically consists of a main dish and a salad or other veggie or side dish. Drinks and dessert are always welcome but not an expectation. It is not necessary to bring disposable dishes or silverware
  • There are a variety of options for providing the meal. For example some of our dinner hosts in the past have
    • Prepared the meal at their personal home and brought it to the BHGH Residential Home
    • Arrive and the Residential Home early and prepare the meal there
    • Bring a carry-out dinner to the Residential Home
  • Currently, we have one scholar at the Girls Home with a peanut allergy. Otherwise no special dietary restrictions.
  • Due to the rigorous schedules of our scholars we try to limit dinner to one hour
  • For the security of our scholars, a staff member will email you with the address of the Residential Homes (we do not publish)
  • If for some reason you need to cancel or reschedule your meal, please notify the staff as soon as possible.
