Chuck Roth

“I know most people think I’m crazy for the amount of time I put into my job, yet making sure the kids in Boys Hope Girls Hope have everything they need to be successful is of the greatest importance.” Chuck Roth, Executive Director of Boys Hope Girls Hope of Greater New Orleans, is defined by his unquenchable thirst to better the lives of others. Inspired by his parents who instilled in him that “all people matter,” he measures his own success by the success of the children he has helped raise over the course of his 16 years working with the organization. “I learned through my upbringing how to be a great parent-figure, even though I don’t have kids of my own. I am a product of a family with a strong faith background, great values, character, work ethic and resiliency.”
