Alternatives For Girls (AFG) helps homeless, high-risk girls, and young women avoid violence, teen pregnancy, and exploitation. It helps them to explore and access the support, resources, and opportunities that are necessary to be safe, to grow strong, and to make positive choices.
AFG provides gender specific services for females in Wayne County who are at risk of coming under the jurisdiction of the court. The young women served by AFG generally lack housing stability, education and employment skills, and financial resources; they are also often victims of violence, poverty, and commercial sexual exploitation.
The needs of at-risk females will be addressed by providing eight specific service treatments:
1. Weekly leadership development groups.
2. Group Counseling.
4. Youth Peer Education.
5. Individual case planning and counseling.
6. Community leadership training.
7. Community outreach on topics such as healthy sexual development, self- worth, healthy relationships and healthy physical self.
8. Crisis response
