My Story A me r a

I am

a member of Young Women Changing Communities

(YWCC). YWCC is a program dedicated to recruiting and training youth to become involved in their community. This program is provided by Alternatives For Girls (AFG) to girls from ages 14-21. Before becoming a member of YWCC almost a year ago, I was just your normal 9th grader. I was known in school for being a scholar. I began to take advantage of having that reputation of being smart, and I became boastful in that area. But what I really needed was something to challenge me. I was definitely challenged during my first three months of YWCC. We had our first mini presentation to a non-profit board of directors and I stumbled my way through it. The skills that I thought I had mastered like enunciation and public speaking were undeveloped.

This was a wakeup call for me to better my communication skills. YWCC (at AFG) helps me exercise those skills through many public speaking and community service activities. We recently gave a presentation to a youth organization about team building, and we’re in the process of planning a neighborhood clean-up day. I’ve learned to be modest. I’ve learned that there’s always room for improvement. Most importantly I learned I don’t always need to be the main role in an act . “A great man is always willing to be little.” This means that you don’t have to be in the spotlight all the time because every job is important in achieving a goal. As a 10th grader, these skills helped me form my school’s first “Bullying Ends Here” rally, during which I gave a speech against bullying. I also helped others pledge to be drug-free during our Drug-Free Week. Thanks to AFG, I’m working towards a brighter future and have a support team motivating me to achieve goals that I set for myself. YWCC transforms young women like me into activists for our community.

My Story BICKIESH’IA

I am

18 years old

and a senior in high school. At the age of 15 my mother found out that I was having sex. Before my mother found out about what I was doing we were like best friends. But after my mom found out, our relationship was dead and gone. I would get put out and would have to find somewhere to sleep. I was in and out of my mother’s house. At the age of 17 my mother put me out for good. After that, I didn’t have a stable home. I was staying in a drug house and abandoned buildings some nights. My teachers started worrying about what was going on in my life, I didn’t want them to know, so I stopped going to school all together. More and more I kept thinking about how I would never be able to achieve my goals in life if I kept living my life this way.

So I went online and found AFG. I was thinking that it would just be somewhere to live. When I arrived, Ms. Aletha greeted me by name. She made me feel so welcome. My first night at AFG, I put in my mind that I was going to take this opportunity to get myself together and try to be independent. Since I have been here, AFG has helped me with so much already. A couple days after moving into the shelter, I started looking for a school. I was able to pick up where I left off and have a regular 12th grade experience. Once I was in school, Ms. Melody took me to a job fair, and I got hired on the spot. After that, everything started falling in place for me. After being in the AFG Shelter for a month, I was able to become a part of the AFG Transition to Independent Living Program, or TIL. TIL is a great program that will help me to reach my goals. It will teach me about budgeting, housing, education, employment, and relationships. I’m set to graduate from high school this June and I’m deciding between joining the Marines or going to college in the fall! I’m also about to take my Certified Nursing Assistant exam. An independent woman takes responsibility and goes with it. She is about more than just surviving in this world —she wants to be successful and give back to others. I am on my way to becoming a strong, independent black woman.

My Story CORNESHA

AFG

Alternatives For Girls has been a huge factor in my life

since I became a Peer Educator (PE). Peer Educators are known for

encouraging youth leadership and increasing civic engagement for young women. The program I participate in is Love Chat. Love Chat is an internet-based team that focuses on HIV/AIDS, STD/STIs, teen pregnancy, healthy relationships, and more. We also hold workshops for young women in the community.

As a young AfricanAmerican woman from Detroit, statistics say that I will not succeed. I became involved in AFG to prevent myself from becoming a statistic.

Love Chat has taught me several things, but also gave me the chance to educate others. During the last year and a half, I have built long-lasting bonds with my coordinators, team, and the ladies I talk to. The skills I have learned from this program have provided me with confidence to break free from my stubborn ways.

By immersing myself in Alternatives

to challenge my barriers.

skills and knowledge to shape my personal philosophy. I know if I want to ensure I have the best education and prosper in a successful career, I will have to start by setting goals and striving for them. Continuing to be a hardworking, dedicated, and trustworthy student is a way to meet my goals. That’s why I will be attending the University of Michigan-Dearborn in the Fall of 2013 to further my education. I have declared my major in Nursing because I always aspired to help and care for others and I believe my career will be fulfilled with new challenges, comfort, and joys every day. Being a part of AFG as a Peer Educator has helped me confirm my educational path. Being a Peer Educator has helped me because each day I get to help others, which I want to do in my career. I am really lucky to be a part of AFG and appreciate them for believing in me through my trials and tribulations.

The AFG Outre ach Progr am:

“I don’t have to be a failure my whole life. Life is about choices and I plan to make the right ones from now on. I deserve better. I am better.” — Summer, former Shelter resident and future nurse

“Since being at AFG I’ve accomplished more than I ever imagined. I’m now a college student and I never would’ve considered college if it wasn’t for AFG. I’ve learned that regardless of my family not being there for me, there’s still people out there willing to help me. People who actually love me and want the best for me.” — Miquel, AFG Peer Educator and future criminal psychologist

Provides counseling to residents and helps them acquire the skills they need to lead independent, productive and fulfilling lives. • L ast year, AFG’s Shelter provided 5,572 nights of care to 133 homeless young women and their children. In addition, AFG served 43 young women through our Aftercare Program, which continues to provide assistance to young women after they have moved out of our shelter (which is often when the hardest work begins). • I n the last year, AFG’s Shelter opened an additional seven beds, increasing its capacity from 20 to 27. • 2  6 young women completed AFG’s Aftercare program, meaning that they completed all of our Transition to Independent Living classes, have moved out of our shelter and have lived successfully on their own for at least six months, and have completed educational or employment goals. Of those young women, 100% furthered their education, including 13 young women enrolling in college; and 65% of them are employed.

Helps teens and women engaging in high-risk activities understand the risks and transition to safe choices and healthy lives. • L ast year, AFG provided 1,000 hours of street outreach to girls and women resulting in 3,895 total contacts. During these contacts, referrals were given out to homeless shelters (including AFG), substance addiction treatment, and other AFG services for further support. • L ast year, 73% of the young women in AFG’s Peer Education program reduced their risk behaviors, including drug use, gang involvement, school issues, running away and pregnancy. • F or the fourth year in a row, 100% of Peer Educators old enough to graduate both graduated from high school and registered for college.

The AFG Prevention Program:

“AFG brings together many young women. It helps and strengthens families. In fact, it creates families—the girls here are like my sisters.” — Kee’Janae, YWCC (Young Women Changing Communities) member and future teacher Works with girls ages 4-21 at risk of teen pregnancy, gang involvement, abusing drugs or alcohol and school truancy. • F or the 12th year in a row, 98% of the young women in AFG’s Prevention Program old enough to graduate from high school not only graduated, but went on to college. • L ast year, 94% (127 of 135) of girls and young women participating in after-school workshops remained drug-free. • O  ur new Strengthening Families program recently celebrated its latest set of graduations. To date, more than 200 families have graduated from the program, which works with families in southwest Detroit to strengthen communication in the home and improve health and nutrition.

M essage fr o m t h e C E O

Dear Friends,

Alternatives For Girls is celebrating our 25th anniversary! There is much to celebrate. We have sheltered 3,633 teen girls and young women who were homeless and alone; we have responded to 44,441 girls and others in crisis; overall, we have impacted more than 105,000 homeless and high-risk girls and young women—and provided them with real access to positive choices. We have clearly changed the world! With your support, we have, for 25 years, been able to: • P rovide a safe and positive place for a teenage girl to come in the day or night when she has run out of options and is terribly vulnerable to the perils of the streets. • S  upport the big ideas and wonderfully positive energy of the girls in our prevention program and their families —to help them help each other stay in school and improve their grades, organize and lead projects that connect others in their neighborhood, spend time with seniors, stand up to gang pressures, help families thrive and say no to violence, and celebrate their victories of all kinds. • S  how teenage girls the way toward understanding and evaluating the risks involved in certain choices, and to clarify and commit to their own values, so that they can weigh those risks against what really matters to them, and then learn to help their peers do the same. • B  e there, on the streets, to offer compassion and alternatives to those who are prostituting—who otherwise may only see a world without love around them. AFG has survived and thrived by piecing together funding from countless sources—and your individual contributions have always been a critical piece of this formula. Your gifts, in fact, have filled big funding gaps crucial for our survival.

Similarly, AFG has always filled gaps, and has served girls and women who would otherwise have fallen right through them— fallen, in many cases, into places from which they may not have emerged for a very long time, may not have emerged whole, and may not have emerged, ever. We began because there were such serious gaps; because girls in southwest Detroit were increasingly and alarmingly out of school, in the streets, and without care or housing. As AFG has grown, we have stayed tuned to the changing needs and environments of homeless and high-risk girls and young women — and we have stayed focused on our mission while expanding to serve this population in new ways. Most recently, we’ve strengthened our focus on helping our participants get into college and stay there; we’re planning enhanced support to help them prepare for jobs that will sustain them and launch careers; we’ve supported those who are determined to leave behind street prostitution and escape the horrors of human trafficking —an alarming and growing problem in Detroit. We must take extraordinary and creative steps to secure the future for AFG’s mission; we don’t know what priority needs will be for homeless and high-risk girls and young women in the next 25 years, but we are determined to be here to figure that out and respond. There is no one else. In these pages, you will find evidence of AFG’s impact through the stories of our participants, annual statistics that reflect the cumulative impact of our work, and an update on our financial status. We invite you to enjoy, in particular, the incredible stories of the girls and young women you will find herein. Thank you for all that you do to contribute to their success.

Amanda (Amy) L. Good, CEO

A c ampa i gn f o r A F G

In 2011, Alternatives For Girls officially launched “Securing the Future: A Campaign for AFG”. Aptly named, the three-year, $10 million comprehensive campaign was designed to financially strengthen, build and secure an organization poised to expand the impact of its work in two complementary ways:

1

2

E xpanded delivery of its recognized successful programs to larger numbers of underserved girls and young women Enhanced capacity to respond to new and changing needs with innovations which would be even more effective in maximizing opportunities for homeless and at-risk young women and girls to make positive choices and pursue powerful lives.

The path to security requires a disciplined approach to building a working capital reserve, establishing and beginning to build a long-term endowment, and increasing the amount of private support for annual operations. We are grateful for all gifts received during this time period as every private dollar contributed between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2014 will go toward our $10 million goal. We are privileged to specially acknowledge the following individuals, foundations, and corporations whose early, steadfast, multi-year commitments have accelerated our journey to a secure future. Special thanks to Union AdWorks and to photographer Michelle Andonian for their generous contributions in creating the 2012 Annual Report.
