Parents/Guardians as Partners

Partnership with parents and guardians is essential to our residential scholarship program. Scholars who join our program are expanding their family to include us, and the best support systems include biological and adoptive families, our team of trained professionals, and mentors from throughout the Boys Hope Girls Hope Network as well as members of our Kansas City community.

Although Boys Hope Girls Hope of Kansas City is not a traditional family service agency, many parents and guardians benefit from services provided by the program, including referrals to community resources, parenting guidance, financial literacy, crisis intervention, and sometimes family counseling.

As a parent, guardian, or referral source, please contact Program Director Macenzie Tucker,, to learn how our program may be a fit for the child you have in mind.

The first step is a referral.
