FAIR Girls is currently working to open a safe house for girls aged 17 to 22. Â While the transitional home would be in DC, we could accept girls from around the country. Â We have more than triple the number of girls in our program now, and housing is a critical need. Â We have had to sleep in our office, in our own apartments, and even in hotel lobbies with our girls in the past year, and it’s not sustainable. Â We are hopeful to open the house in the fall, pending funding.
I’d love to share a few links with you of videos from our recent May 8th gala. Â The evening was a great celebration of our girls’ accomplishments and also helped us raise $20K of the $80K we need to open our safe house!
