Who we serve

When a young woman becomes homeless, every moment she spends on the street increases her risk for exploitation and trafficking. Reaching her quickly is critical for her safety. Often, Alternatives For Girls is her only lifeline.

We meet girls and women where they are. At Alternatives For Girls, they can access safe shelter, crisis support, and so much more. With this support, girls can stay out of harm’s way, succeed in school, graduate, and become leaders in their communities. Most importantly, they have a safe place to learn and grow.

When I was 13 years old I became homeless. For seven years I struggled to support myself, and during that time I became a victim of human trafficking. Everything began to change when I found Alternatives For Girls.
