Make Girls Place Your First Place!

Make Girls Place Your First Place!

Girls Place, Inc strives to empower girls of all racial, religious and economic backgrounds to G.R.O.W. confident, strong, and independent in order to thrive in the world around them. We accomplish this mission by providing girls grades K-12 with a safe, nurturing environment after school and during summer break. We also provide our girls with the opportunity to participate in team sports.

Our organization currently has a number of needs including general operating funds, scholarship funding, and in-kind gifts.  To find out more about supporting Girls Place, please contact (352) 373-GIRL (4475).
