The mission of Boys and Girls Country of Houston, Inc. is to
change the lives of children from families in crisis by loving and nurturing
them in a Christian home environment, raising them to become self-sustaining
and contributing adults. Our vision is that every child has a place to grow up
and a sense of being home.
Poverty, abuse and neglect all have a negative effect on
children and can impede their chances of personal success. Boys and Girls
Country addresses a child’s well-being, helping to break the cycle of poverty
for our children by providing a secure, stable, Christian home environment with
an emphasis on education, building healthy relationships, and setting goals for
the future. We do this with broad-based financial support hundreds of
volunteers, and the prayers of thousands.
