New ideas, new paths, new people emerge from the AFG Shelter. It is a place where homeless girls and young women (15-21 years) who have faced tremendous obstacles and found themselves without a home or a family to provide for them, learn to discover abilities and callings that lead them toward meaningful careers and productive lives. It all begins with finishing diplomas and advancing toward degrees, developing a strong work ethic, becoming good mothers (for those who are pregnant or parenting), acquiring financial literacy, learning cooperation and respect for others, and the growth of self-esteem. Participants redefine themselves and reshape their futures.

While at AFG, I learned how to budget and save money, prepare for interviews, and learn important parenting skills. With this support, I was able to find a job and move into my own apartment!
