Review for Pace Center for Girls, Inc., Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

PACE Center for Girls is an absolutely outstanding organization committed to the encouragement, development, growth, education and nurturing of girls and young women who have been victims of abuse - physical, emotional, and sexual. I got involved with PACE through a dear friend and college roommate. What a blessing it was to me to be associated with such wonderful people. All of the staff shared a passionate commitment to helping these girls who face so many challenges in their lives. It provides a safe haven for girls to enjoy being a girl, and allows them to gain confidence and improve academic performance. Girls are often referred by the judicial system, as a result of minor crimes or repeated truancy. The majority of girls in the PACE program never re-offend, and most either complete a GED, or return to public education and obtain a high school diploma. The confidence they obtain through the PACE program allows them to become responsible young women, and contributors to our society in a positive way. PACE provides this opportunity for growth and healing by providing small education classes (about 10 per class), frequent counseling, and support for the many challenges that face these young women.

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

hearing the testimony of many girls and young women who have had their lives changed by PACE. It is so heart-warming and gratifying to hear stories from young women, spoken from their hearts, about the way that PACE has given them freedom and a future.

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

seeing the success of the young women who complete the PACE program.

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

absolutely the most dedicated and amazing individuals I have had the pleasure of being around.

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

Serve more girls!!
