Family is integral to every scholar’s success.

Partnership with parents and guardians is essential to the Boys Hope Girls Hope program. We work closely with families and include parents in goal setting and decisions related to their scholars’ health, well-being and academic achievement. Scholars who join the program are expanding their family-like network to include other Boys Hope Girls Hope scholars, collegians, alumni, team members, and mentors from the community.

Although Boys Hope Girls Hope of Greater New Orleans is not a traditional family service agency, many parents and guardians benefit from services provided by the program, including information on, and referral to, community resources, parenting guidance, crisis intervention, and informal counseling.

If you are a parent or guardian, and would like more information regarding your relationship with and expectations of Boys Hope Girls Hope, please contact Executive Director, Chuck Roth, at [email protected].
