Mission:  To empower girls and young women to have productive lives through holistic, gender-specific programs, education and experiences.  

These strengths-based services provide a continuum of care based on a girl’s chronological and developmental needs. We have developed our conceptual program model based on research findings and best practices – working from a positive perspective to build upon each girl’s personal strengths and provide opportunities and experiences for each girl to be successful. Our holistic programming approach is based on addressing the ten pathways, or life domains, that are critical to a girl’s development and future success. Since we began service delivery in May 2002, we have built a unique continuum of services to respond to the needs and challenges that girls are experiencing at a particular point of time. 

Through a comprehensive assessment, these life domains are then translated into an individualized “pathway” plan that is developed in partnership with each girl, her family, Gwen’s Girls staff and other involved agencies. Each girl’s needs-based screening and assessment will determine her comprehensive care model, including the intensity of services and which programs/services in our unique continuum of care will be provided.

Gwen''s Girls offers prevention services; family reunification services; a residential program for delinquent and dependent girls – including pregnant and parenting adolescents; a foster care program; school and community-based services; summer camp; a job readiness program that includes academic enrichment and tutoring, career guidance, and job shadowing; individual and family/group counseling; therapeutic groups; health and wellness workshops; life skills; suspension and truancy programs; and mentoring.
