Our Goal | Challenge:
Girlfriends 4 Girlfriends goal is to establish affordable housing for women and children that have been abused or have experienced domestic violence. Individual and group counseling helps them set goals for their lives, further develop their academic and vocational skills and prepare for employment opportunities that are commensurate with their abilities. After homeless/abused single women or women with children complete their residential program at the Center for Women & Children and are ready to move out to be productive citizens, that move is not always so simple. Safe and affordable housing is an enormous barrier to living successful lives for themselves and their children. Girlfriends 4 Girlfriends goal is to establish affordable housing for these women.
Helping Women and Children of domestic violence and homelessness obtain safe and affordable housing.
Help Women and Children with Affordable Housing in Miami and Broward.
I’m so thankful for the new home I have for myself and my kids. It’s a dream come true!
Unmask Gala a Smashing Success!

Volunteers from Cover Girls (women who mentor abused women) and Girlfriends 4 Girlfriends (women helping to provide safe and affordable housing for abused women) worked very hard to have this special night of compassion.
