We wanted to publicly communicate changes that are happening at Girls Inc. of Monroe County, (GIMC) as we work closely with each of our partners to build a better future. Together, we will decide how our organization can best serve the girls in Monroe County, while reinforcing our mission – to inspire girls to be strong, smart and bold.

Here at GIMC, our girls are at the heart of what we do and why we do it. We’re committed to being responsive and fiscally responsible while navigating these times with concern for everyone’s safety. With that in mind, the board made the difficult decision to suspend operations until a plan can be formulated for dealing with the future realities and a new normal. This suspension will include the omission of the summer camp. It also includes the potential, depending on progression of the pandemic, of not resuming programming until early 2021.

The health and safety of all our girls is our top priority. Maintaining the continuity of programming in MCCSC schools and in our center is another. These are complicated times, things are changing quickly, and planning for the future has never been more important. Throughout the process, we’re committed to keeping you informed and encourage you to follow updates by liking our Facebook page. There is no doubt, we are all in this together.

Thank you for your continued support – through your regular donations, our flower sale, your kind words and messages of encouragement. Please stay safe and healthy- we have the greatest community of girls, parents, supporters, and friends – we are grateful for you all and sending you light and love every day.
