Girls Matter provides the young women of Hanover Park with a sense of belonging and self-worth. Here is what some of the girls have to say about what Girls Matter means to them:
“Girls Matter means everything to me. The people here are like my second family. We’re like sisters! And Roseanne is my second mother.”
“I love that I can be myself and that I have people I can talk to. Girls Matter has helped me to accept myself and who I am; nobody is perfect and we all matter.”
“Girls Matter means being part of a family, helping one another and always having positive hopes for the future.”
