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

Good evening and God bless you!! I am honored to have another opportunity to share in prayer with you this week. I truly believe that God answers prayer but the thing about God that makes me smile is that He does it in ways we do not or would not anticipate! He is so, so gracious in His love towards us because He is always working in the background, always working things out for our good (Romans 8:28). In His own time and in His own way, He sends the blessing!

Father, thank You for the blessing of this day. You graciously touched us this morning allowing us to awaken in our right mind and in health and to go throughout this day getting us safely to this point in time. We say thank You. Your word says, And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him (1st John 5:14-15 KJV). So we pray now for families everywhere who have been and are being affected by COVID-19. We ask that Your strength and peace would rest upon them today as they grieve the loss of loved ones. Lord, we just do not understand the why of all of this. Our minds cannot comprehend it all, but our trust is in You. You command us to trust in You with ALL of our hearts and not to depend on our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). Help us, oh God, to acknowledge You so that You CAN direct our path. I pray for Your help to do just that - help us to trust You more!

Thank You in advance for deliverance, salvation, and power to stand on Your truth trusting in You all the way, in Jesus' name I pray, Amen!

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever (Psalm 23: 4, 6, KJV).

Oh, Heavenly Father,

In these times I often feel as though I’m walking in the dark, uncertain of many things, and fearful of the unknown. I know that if I focus on You and Your path, all will be as You intend it to be, Heavenly Father, for all of Your paths lead Home!

You are in control and You provide what we can endure and manage. I trust Your path, however rocky it may be, to lead me Home! At times through pain and confusion comes needed change. No circumstance You give us is in our lives in vain. I pray You continue to be our gentle Guide and lead us through these times of change. I trust and believe as I continue to walk Your path, I know it leads me Home.

Our Father, this I pray, Amen.
