How You Can Help

It takes many resources to provide for our Boys and Girls Country kids. We are just like any other family! It costs $147 per day to care for one child at BGC. This cost includes housing, food, clothing, healthcare, counseling, and teaching parents. Every single investment you make in our children is critical to their success and well-being.
