> Boys and Girls Country of Houston Welcome > About Us > Financial Information
Boys and Girls Country is a privately funded Home for children. Individuals, businesses, foundations, churches, and civic groups make our Home possible because of their support. Some give a monthly donation and others contribute at special times of the year. 85-90% of the annual operating budget comes from contributions or special events.
Families are asked to contribute toward the child's care based on their income and size of family, however no child is ever turned away because their family cannot pay for their care. Children may stay as long as they need care.
