Gf’s creates a pampered experience with a “Girls Night In” for women in the shelters provided by PADV. We bring in a Life Coach/Special Guest Speaker, food, drinks and special gifts to EMPOWER, ENCOURAGE and give HOPE to women who are survivors of this devastating abuse by a loved one. We feel that all women need be told and shown how special they are – regardless of their circumstances.
Georgia’s Department of Human Services -Foster Care – we provided a few baskets of new items filled with home appliances, accessory items, and toys for a 17-year young lady with a 2-year old daughter who had been in for over seven years.
