I am a former student at the PACE Center for Girls in Jacksonville and graduated 8 years ago. PACE was an amazing experience for me! I was in a lot of trouble and was on a terrble path in my life, and with the loving care and guidance of the PACE organization and staff, I am now in an amazing place in my life and I hold them hugely responsible for the changes I was able to make in my life. and I would strongly reccomend donating to this organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My own life, everyday.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

all the amazing staff that was so supportive and understanding of my personal situation and helped me deal with my own problems, which gave me a positive outlook on life.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

fantastic, supportive, understanding, compassionate people with the patience of saints.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change so many more lives.
