Who Are We

Broad Street Children's Foundation is committed to
providing financial support to children's homes caring for orphaned,
abandoned and broken children right here in the United States.

Broad Street Children's Foundation was founded in 1996 as the Boys Home Foundation by former residents, Patrick Kelly, James Kelly and Jim Hingley, of the Virginia Home for Boys. Our goal is to help change the way America cares for our children. We are dedicated to the support of children's homes that do an exemplary job of caring for and raising children whom have found themselves deprived of a loving and nurturing home environment. Children, that through no fault of their own, have found themselves alone, abandoned, neglected or abused.

Broad Street Children's Foundation supports self-sustaining children's homes across the United States that actively foster the development of strong, well-rounded children in their care.

Since the start of the Foundation, over $800,000.00 in grants have been donated to children's homes across the country. Additionally, through the Bill and Jackie Hazelgrove Scholarship Program, we have been able to assist a number of young people to continue their education and work towards a college or vocational degree.

Today, the Broad Street Children's Foundation is continuing the dream of it's original founders through the second generation. Equally as dedicated to changing the lives of children in need across America and striving to break the cycle of abuse and neglect for other children and their families.

We strongly believe every child can succeed in life regardless of their circumstances. With your help, we can give children's homes across America the support needed to help end the generational cycle of poverty, abuse and violence that affects so many children today. By supporting homes that lift children up, healing their wounds and put them on the path to a brighter future. Support to help children heal, be educated and grow to prepare them for a successful future as productive members of our society.

"I can remember the first night at the Home, I was laying awake in bed and I was just a kid. One of the boys said, 'Lonely aren't you?' He knew how I felt, you know, yea, I was lonely. And he said, 'We all were, but don't forget that I'm your brother.'"
