For 33 years, Alternatives For Girls has helped homeless and high-risk girls and young women avoid violence, teen pregnancy, and exploitation. With the assistance of AFG, girls and young women are able to explore and access the support, resources, and opportunities necessary to be safe, grow strong, and make positive life choices.
AFG started as a volunteer-run, five-bed emergency shelter for young women. Based in southwest Detroit since its founding, the organization has evolved to serve 6,000 homeless and at-risk girls, women, and families annually through Prevention, Housing, and Outreach programs.
AFG’s CEO, Amy Good, says, “It’s a joy to be part of a team of awesome women (and a few men) who enable the girls and women we serve to overcome obstacles and become Detroit leaders and movers themselves.”
