Rachel’s Place is the address for girls with no address.
Rachel’s Place girls are our girls. They originate from all our communities.
Our Transitional Independent Living Program has earned acclaim as a healthy, nurturing environment for girls who cannot live at home.
We provide the girls with a safe place to live, daily necessities, counseling, friendship, educational support, and whatever else they need so they can effectively lead their lives and develop into happy, healthy, productive adults.
There was no play this year, but the many needs of these girls remain.
We need your support to continue to provide these resources and give homeless girls a place to call home. Please contribute generously to Rachel’s Place and to our new, much-needed Rachel’s Place II, for girls over 21.
We need to raise $600,000 May 2-4 to support our ongoing projects:
Rachel’s Place State-certified, city-run transitional independent living program for runaway and homeless girls ages 16-21. We provide a home, daily living necessities, and professional, compassionate support to enable healthy, successful living.
Rachel’s Place II Step-down residence for girls ages 21+. We provide a home and guidance and support for girls who are not yet ready to cope with life on their own.
