Our mission is to provide a safe and encouraging atmosphere in a residential setting for underprivileged females aged 12 – 17 years; to promote positive behaviors, character enhancement, educational advancement, and to reunite with family.
We Have Exciting News!
On March 1st, The Girls Shelter was honored with a grant from First Presbyterian Church of Fort Smith to upgrade the furniture of our communal areas and to improve our shared living spaces.
Our Board would like to recognize that without community partners such as First Presbyterian, we would not be able to accomplish our mission of providing an inviting, safe space for our Girls.
It takes a village!
"It means so much to me knowing that I got a second chance. It really means a lot to me. I could not thank you all enough for pushing me further. I also got a second chance of being raised by the most wonderful staff. You are a lifesaver to me."
