Boys Hope Girls Hope of Arizona launched the Success Starts with Hope Breakfast 13 years ago to provide a tremendous opportunity to share the mission of Boys Hope Girls Hope.  In addition to inspiring and educating guests and helping to further our mission by raising awareness and support, this year BHGH will be honoring F. Michael Geddes, long-time board member and supporter.

Join us this year to hear from some of the Scholars themselves about the impact your support is making. There is no charge to attend. There will be an opportunity to donate.

More Information on Boys Hope Girls Hope of Arizona

The mission of Boys Hope Girls Hope (BHGH) is to help academically capable and motivated children-in-need to reach their full potential and become men and women for others by providing value-centered homes, opportunities, and education through college. It is our objective to serve promising, highly motivated children-in need with educational scholarships, academic support, enrichment opportunities, and the resources scholars need to reach their full potential, which sometimes includes housing.

Through BHGH, scholars gain access to the resources and support necessary to attain a college degree, become true leaders in their communities, and break the generational cycle of poverty for themselves and their families. BHGH of Arizona was established in 1989 with the opening of the Boys Hope Residential Home in Phoenix. The Girls Hope Home opened in Phoenix in 1989. The non-residential Community-Based Program began in 2004 to increase the number of children served. BHGH of Arizona currently serves 90 youth: 16 in residence, 42 in the community-based program and 32 in college. Founded in 1977 in St. Louis, Missouri, BHGH International has helped 15 cities in the U.S. develop programs. BHGH of Arizona is governed by a local board of directors and is 100% privately funded.

All support raised for Arizona youth stays in Arizona.
