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!

God Bless You!

 

Blessings,

Trish
Executive Director

From Our Facebook Page

Honored to have MyBigBrother Bishop Derrick Thomas of Faith Worship Center church in San Antonio, TX lead our first prayer for 2018. Be blessed!

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert (Isaiah 43:19 KJV).

Our Father, we thank You for such an awesome day. Thank You for bringing us through 2017 and over into 2018. Thank You for the days, weeks, and months You have given us. We now forget about our failures and successes knowing that our latter days are greater than our former. Today, we speak life to FOCUSED.

We decree and declare that 2018 will be the greatest year of our existence. I speak wealth to Dr. Trish and the health to enjoy it. I speak abundance of great things to our members and the people we serve. We proclaim this year as the year of our GOD. You rule and reign in our lives and in this ministry. We love you, Father and give You the preeminence, in Jesus name, Amen.
