Boys Hope Girls Hope recently kicked off the Building Hope Initiative, with a goal to raise $2 million for BHGH programs. The event took place at the groundbreaking for a home for eight BHGH scholars on a lot made available by St. Xavier High School.
Work is expected to begin in September and should be completed by April 2017.
The Rev. William Verbryke is honorary chair of the Building Hope Initiative. Mark Stall is chairing the Building Hope Initiative and New Home Construction project.
The new home will feature a large kitchen, dining and living space; four scholar bedrooms; two staff bedrooms; a guest room; study spaces for each scholar; a group work area; a great room; a partially finished lower level; and a patio.
