What is the importance of these items?
We are giving girls the opportunity to explore and embrace their personal style and creativity through fashion. Cultivating good grooming practices and their own sense of style will empower girls through knowing that they can look good and feel good. Girls in foster care are on a journey filled with changes in their family life, living situation, possibly a change of schools, and adolescent body changes. Developing their own look will help them appreciate their own individuality and empower them from the outside, in.
