Growing strong girls
Ophelia’s Place came to us nearly a decade ago. The new non-profit had no name recognition but a very clear vision: to impart upon girls ages 10-17 the gentle guidance that would help them grow into independent women.
Services and programming isn’t always so uncool and obvious: the girls giggle over games after school, and they direct emotions into musical and other artistic endeavors. Sometimes benefits are more direct, like during the “Healthy Relationships” curriculum that’s provided at local schools. But at the heart of it all is a constant reminder that each girl controls her life.
