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.

Here's a snippet from one of our girls...

"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!</br >
God Bless You!

Happy 4th of July From FOCUSED Ministries! Let's celebrate our independence today! In our country and through The Cross by Jesus Christ!

"Everything starts with imagination. Nothing becomes reality unless somebody thinks of it. Every great business, every great company, every piece of art, every musical note all have one thing in common: somebody imagined it before it became reality. Nothing happens unless somebody imagines it." Pastor Rick Warren

May God enlighten the eyes of your mind so that you can see the hope that his calling holds for you (Ephesians 1:18, NJB).

Dear Lord,

We thank You for the gift of imagination! We thank You for blessing each of us with this amazing gift and since it is from You Father, our imaginations are limitless! We thank You for placing in the imagination of Sister Trisha, FOCUSED Ministries! We pray against seeds of doubt which attempts to place limits on what You can do because through You all things are possible! We ask that You bless FOCUSED Ministries above and beyond our wildest dreams and imaginations!

We pray for this in the mighty name of Jesus! Amen!!

So, we had a really nice time getting to know Our Girls at our 1st GirlsFOCUSED summer outing! The girls introduced us to Rolled ice cream! Have you heard of this? It is just that...rolled ice cream! And, have you heard of Dragon’s Breath where they take items like cereal and soak it in liquid nitrogen? Whoa! Pretty interesting to see!

Looking forward to Game Night for our next gathering! July 11 from 6-8pm at 9779 Gross Point Rd. in Skokie. Girls ages 13-18 invited to come! Bring your favorite board or card games and snack to share with everyone! See you there!
