Boys and Girls Country of Houston Welcome

Spring Festival 2015

Bicycles, super slides, fun rides and great food were all a part of Boys and Girls Country’s 37th annual Spring Festival and inaugural Petal for a Purpose bike ride that raised approximately $598,819 this past weekend. Over 3,500 visitors attended the festival and over 100 cyclists participated in the bike ride. Proceeds from both events will go toward funding expenses to care for the 88 children staying at Boys and Girls Country and the 14 young adults in the College and Career program. Boys and Girls Country is a home for children whose families are in crisis and are in need of a place to live, as their home life has been disrupted.

 

“Boys and Girls Country provides stability and structure for children, keys to a child’s success, which is why we are more than pleased with the money raised this year,” says John Nesser, Spring Festival co-chair. “Most of these kids have experienced a rough start to life because of family crises such as homelessness, abuse or neglect.”

 

“When children come to live at Boys and Girls Country,” says Cynthia Nesser, John’s wife and Spring Festival co-chair, “there is so much they need. It costs $139 a day to provide a home, food, medical care, clothing, ‘round the clock Teaching Parent Staff, and after school tutoring and counseling. The first three months are critical. In three months we spend $12,510 helping a child transition to our home. So the dollars we raised on Saturday are critical to their care.”

 

Thank you to everyone who supported the event by sponsoring or attending.  We are so grateful!

 

 


Boys and Girls Country is a Christian Home, providing children from families in crisis with love, security, a sense of self-worth, and opportunities to prepare them for a successful life.
