THERE IS HOPE


Boys Hope Girls Hope of Kansas City provides a stable home, nurturing care and academic scholarship to bright and motivated boys from challenging circumstances. Our scholars come to us from a variety of adverse situations—poverty, homelessness, neighborhood violence or severe family stress—but, they still have the courage and the drive to strive for their dreams.

We believe that the combination of a quality education, a safe place to live within a family-like setting, emotional and spiritual guidance and a consistent routine will provide the young men we serve with the values and opportunities they need to achieve their full potential.

WHO WE SERVE:

We empower boys ages ten through college graduation to overcome the obstacles—neighborhoods shattered by crime and poverty; families broken by economic hardship, death, and divorce; overcrowded and underperforming schools—that threaten their potential, their futures and their families’ futures.
