Thank you for taking the time to refer a student for admission at Boys Hope Girls Hope [BHGH] of Northeastern Ohio Residential Program. This form typically takes 15-20 minutes to complete.
Scholars enrolled in our Residential Program attend outstanding private middle and high schools whose missions reflect the same holistic values that BHGH was founded upon. Residential scholars live in one of three homes on our campus in Garfield Heights. The homes are staffed by a qualified and highly trained group of dedicated Residential Counselors who have answered the vocational call to live-in community with these young people.
Qualified referrals have a need for a long-term nurturing “home away from home” that offers opportunity and prevention as well as:
AGE: Are typically between the ages of 11 and 14

CHARACTER: Consistently demonstrate integrity, compassion and service towards others, positively relates to adults and peers & possess recognizable leadership potential
NEED: Come from families that are committed to partnering with BHGH for their child’s holistic growth and academic success and maintain a household income that is generally at or below 200% of the federal poverty guideline
