Alternatives For Girls
Helping Homeless And High-Risk Girls And Young Women
Alternatives For Girls (AFG) helps homeless and high-risk girls and young women to avoid violence, teen pregnancy, and exploitation; and helps them to explore and access the support, resources, and opportunities necessary to be safe, grow strong, and make positive choices in their lives. We provide safe shelter, crisis support, awareness and prevention programs, counseling and life skills training, and much more. Founded by a small group of concerned southwest Detroit residents, clergy, and business people, AFG has evolved into a multi-service agency that serves more than 5,000 girls and young women every year.
