Since 1973, the Girls Home has offered girls from
troubled homes an opportunity to overcome
the hurts of the past and prepare for a better future.
Our program provides a home-like atmosphere,
with regular family activities, holiday celebrations,
and so on. The girls go to public schools and attend
the church of their choice.
Most of our residents are 14 or older. This means that they will “age out” of foster care and begin life on their own in four years or less. Our program is therefore focused on helping them become “Connected by 25”—gaining the skills
they will need to succeed as adults. We encourage residents to form relationships with others through participation in community events as well as at church and school. We stress the importance of education. When school is not in session, most residents have the opportunity to have a part-time job, thus getting valuable work experience and gaining some financial literacy. Each girl has regularly assigned household chores that help her understand what tasks are involved in having a household of your own. We applaud our girls’ accomplishments; when they fail, we try to help them figure out how to get a better result next time.
