Our Vision for Girls Giving Back is to:
Partner with organizations addressing the economic and social conditions that affect an individual’s health, access to community-based health services, crisis prevention tied to family stabilization programs, and other poverty-related issues. Also, to bring attention to the homeless population in Atlanta while assisting to decrease the numbers by becoming directly involved in an effort to provide meals to the less fortunate. We are proud to state that we are succeeding in the initial objectives of our mission which is to GIVE BACK.
