Get to Know a Grantee: Alternatives for Girls

May 17, 2019

We developed the Get to Know a Grantee questionnaire to illustrate the great variety of youth-serving FYSB grantees, to share their insights on the work that they do, and to inspire collaboration and the sharing of experiences and ideas. This month, we feature Alternatives for Girls, a Detroit-based nonprofit dedicated to helping homeless and high-risk girls and young women avoid violence, teen pregnancy and exploitation, and explore opportunities to be safe, to grow strong, and to make positive choices in their lives.
