Enchanting Boutique and GIRL$ Empowerment Haven
We lost our most recent space after flooding from an establishment above damaged it. We are raising funds to to obtain a permanent space that will be transformed into an Enchanting Boutique and GIRL$ Empowerment Haven at which girls will not only receive formal dresses and accessories, but where they will go and be empowered with self confidence and self worth for life.
The boutique was the realization of a long time dream and was made possible through the generosity of donors. Having the boutique enabled the organization to continually accept donations and distribute formal dresses throughout the year, not just during prom season, provide low cost dresses, shoes, and accessories to the public, and provide funds for its programs designed to increase the self awareness, self esteem, and self sufficiency of girls ages 12-19, primarily from low income families. Our GIRL$ Service-Learning Program participants and select supporters were able to display and sale their arts and crafts at the boutique. We hope to have a new place soon so that we can continue to inspire a new generation of economic and social entrepreneurs that live in their passion, are self sufficient citizens and serve the community", stated Bonita C. Johnson, President and CEO.
