Who We Are

Boys Hope Girls Hope of Greater New Orleans provides children in need between the ages of 10 and 18 with a stable home, positive parenting, high-quality education, and the support needed to reach their full potential.

Our local founders, Fr. Harry Tompson, S.J. and Hon. Adrian G. Duplantier, recognized that a child’s ability to thrive requires both high-quality academics and a safe, nurturing home environment.

Boys Hope Girls Hope is unique, and particularly effective in changing children’s lives, because it fills both of these needs. We empower youth by surrounding them with healthy environments, mentors, and college expectations.

We build self-esteem through relationship, involve families as advocates for their children, expose youth to college, and give our scholars a meaningful connection to society through service.

We intervene and help children succeed by offering them a stable home, college preparation, and round-the-clock support.
