Boys Hope Girls Hope
In 1977, Father Paul Sheridan, SJ, an educator in St. Louis, envisioned a program combining a quality education and a nurturing home environment to benefit children-in-need. His idea was to maximize the long-term results of the program by providing stability, fostering personal responsibility and optimizing each child’s ability to fulfill his/her potential. Today there are Boys Hope Girls Hope homes and programs in 15 US cities and 4 Latin American countries.
