GirlsFOCUSED Mentoring Group

GirlsFOCUSED is a faith-based mentoring program serving the Chicagoland area. Our organization is motivated by God’s love to serve, support, and love young girls. Our purpose is to help young girls between the ages of 13-18 achieve excellence across all life areas through our 1:1 mentoring program and quarterly group activities.

  • We "keep it real" and relevant for this current generation without pushing a “religious agenda”
  • We are a resource for families, providing another layer of support because it truly “takes a village”

If you want to learn more about GirlsFOCUSED and/or want to enroll a young lady, you are invited to attend our first parent meeting. We look forward to seeing you there! You may also contact us for more information.

"There are so many great things about GirlsFOCUSED, I barely even know where to start. First, Dr. Baker, Mrs. Murray, and every person on the GirlsFOCUSED board are so incredibly committed. They strive to help young women succeed in life by giving us an opportunity to have a relationship with God. What I love is that the founders of this organization make us girls feel like we are their number one, but what I love even more is that we actually aren't-- God is..."

From the desk of the Executive Director:

Greetings on behalf of FOCUSED Ministries, Inc.,

We are so pleased that God has led you to this site. In doing so, He has opened a door and provided an opportunity for us to introduce ourselves to you as to who we are and what we do.

We are a non-profit organization with the simple but awesome mission: to help young women achieve excellence. Like other social service programs, we strive to address multiple facets of life, however, we are different. We are motivated by a God-given burden to love and a deep desire to embrace and lift up all of our young sisters. We are unashamedly faith-based and all of our work is grounded in Scripture.

At FOCUSED, we understand that life is often a bumpy journey. As we travel along the road of life, God allows certain paths to intersect for the specific purpose of building relationships. It is through the blessing of relationship with one another that we are strengthened. With God in our midst, the strengthened are also then empowered to achieve excellence. This is our testimony and we want it to be yours, too. We believe you were created to be excellent in all things. We want you to also believe this truth and live excellently!

We invite you to seek us out and make a connection that just might be life changing!
God Bless You!


Trish, Executive Director

O LORD our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth! We honor You as God. We thank You. We praise You. We worship You. You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for you have created all things and for your pleasure, they are and were created (Rev 4:11 KJV).

We thank You for Your Son, Jesus Christ, and for His great gift (His life, death, and resurrection) of redemption that gives us access to You to even make our prayer requests. We thank You for FOCUSED Ministries because it is a "good work." Scripture tells us it is You, Lord, who initiates in us both to will and the do these things.

We pray for the leadership team and all of those who are involved in carrying out this vision. We ask that You keep "the purpose" fresh in their hearts and minds. We pray that You fill them all with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding (Col. 1:9) as they seek and implement creative ideas to nurture, nourish, inform, and develop the total person for all they are trying to help. We pray that You continue to empower them with physical, mental, and emotional endurance and, of course, the faith and patience to do all You, Lord, have for them to achieve. We pray, Almighty God, that You continue providing the needed tangible resources from Your unlimited supply. Scripture tells us that the earth is Yours, all that is in it, (the silver and gold, Haggai 2:8) and indeed everything belongs to You. We pray that regardless of the challenges and possible setbacks they face that You enable them to yet rejoice in You and express their thankfulness (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).

Father God, we pray for the girls and young women of this ministry that You protect their minds and hearts from the evil one, from evil people, and every ungodly action; from deceptive practices and the casual mindlessness to which the young is given. We ask that You give them wise hearts, even a heart that is sensitive to You and Your voice. We pray that they be teachable, strong, respectful, and encouraged as they face the usual day-to-day issues that are a part of growing up. We pray also that they learn and willingly use their personal influence for the good of others.

We pray in the name, power, and authority of Jesus Christ our Lord.
