“My granddaughter spent the first 5 years of her life in a turbulent environment and had a lot of manners and life skills to learn. Miss Sally and the rest of the Just for Girls staff offered the loving, structured environment she needed. She is now a flourishing 10-year-old that is delightful to be around! We can never thank you enough!”

JFG Grandparent

“Just for Girls was a godsend for me and my daughters when I was evicted. My girls needed stability while I was getting back on my feet and I enrolled them in JFG Elementary so they could attend before and after school at any JFG center in the county. I am so thankful that my girls are being cared for by staff that is like an extended family and that they will have a better education and a better future.”

JFG Parent

“I wish I could say all of the fantastic things about my first year at Just for Girls Middle. I didn’t want to be here at first, but my teachers helped me so much. I learned the importance of family – because here, we are a family and we all look out for each other. Just for Girls helped me become a better person.”
