OUTREACH PROGRAM

Our Friends Place is furthering its mission of empowering young women to break the generational cycles of abuse, neglect, homelessness and poverty by developing and implementing a new non-residential outreach program in the community at high schools, local colleges and universities, and after-school programs. The SOAR to Success program focuses on building knowledge of personal Strengths, Opportunities available to young women, building Allies and resources, and developing Resiliency.

In this program, we build skills around:
