WHO WE SERVE AND WHERE WE WORK
WHO WE SERVE
Each year, Girls Inc. Dallas serves a diverse population of over 1,000 girls, ages 6 to 18.
The girls we serve reflect the diversity of our community: 47% Hispanic, 41% African American, 3% White, 1% Asian, and 8% Other.
The majority of the girls enrolled in our programs come from economically disadvantaged Dallas backgrounds:
- 82% are identified as low-to-moderate income.
- 71% live in households with family incomes under $30,000.
- Many of our girls live in single parent households and lack access to experiences that engage them and maintain their motivation for success
- Girls Inc. of Metro Dallas is committed to providing the Girls Inc. experience to all youth who identify as girls regardless of their assigned sex at birth, and those who are exploring their gender identity or expression during their time at Girls. Inc. We are proud to provide girls with a welcoming, inclusive environment where they can feel safe and comfortable expressing themselves freely.
Where we work
For girls in greater Dallas, every day brings new opportunities, challenges and choices. The ability to respond with thoughtful, informed decisions at home, school and with friends and peers can be a big step toward confident, healthy, fulfilling careers and lives. Throughout our history, we have always held a special concern for girls. Our comprehensive development programs and services provide girls with the skills to overcome their challenges and become responsible citizens and leaders.
We provide our afterschool and summer/Spring Break programming at our three neighborhood centers:
We also offer girls and young women throughout the community with critical programming through our partnerships with area schools and community organizations. Visit the Community Based Programs page for more information.
