About Boys Hope/Girls Hope

Boys Hope Girls Hope was created with a vision to house young people in a supportive atmosphere and give them an opportunity to continue their education away from the destructive environments they’d lived in previously. For the Extreme Makeover team, along with hundreds of local volunteers, it’s a great chance to give back to youngsters who made the difficult choice of leaving home to pursue their dream of getting a good education. The Emmy award winning reality program Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, in its 8th season, was produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. It’s executive-produced by Brady Connell and George Verschoor. David Goldberg is Chairman, Endemol North America.
