Why do you serve only girls?

The purpose of Girls Inc. is to enable girls to achieve their full potential. To do this, girls must conquer social, legal, and cultural barriers that are different than those of boys. By providing programming created specifically for girls, their needs, and their unique challenges, we are able to put them on the same playing field as boys as they grow through life and become independent and responsible adults. Girls Inc. programs aim to improve girls’ lives through purposeful, relevant activities.

Quotes from Parents

I drop off my daughter and always think to myself I can go to work knowing she’s safe, learning new things, and having fun with her friends and the staff. Peace of mind, that’s what means the most to me.

My daughter is my life. In this crazy world I just don’t feel comfortable about leaving her with just anybody. I know she’s safe and taken care of there. She loves the staff, and that means everything to me.

Girls Inc. is so important to our family, especially during the COVID school shutdown. Analisa went to Girls Inc. every day at 7:30 where the staff had set up a remote learning center. The girls had support all day long, did their schoolwork, homework, and played in the gym, or watched a movie after school. We wouldn’t have been able to work or manage our younger children if not for Girls Inc. We’re so grateful.
