Girls Inc. of Tarrant County was founded in 1976 as the Arlington Girls Club by local community leaders who saw the need for comprehensive services for girls and young women in the Arlington community. From its beginnings as the Arlington Girls Club, Girls Inc. has grown from serving eight girls in a borrowed facility to serving over 7,000 children and youth annually. Girls Inc. is a multi-faceted, multi-site organization serving hundreds of children and girls daily.
The mission of Girls Incorporated of Tarrant County is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold. We fulfill our mission by providing research-based curricula, as well as member-driven programs at our afterschool programs and through prevention and enrichment programs in Arlington, Fort Worth, Keller, Crowley, Mansfield, Azle, Everman, Euless and many other cities and schools in Tarrant County. Types of outreach locations include schools (afterschool programs and in classrooms during the school day), churches, community centers and libraries. Our programs are designed to actively involve girls in life skills and leadership activities and therefore raise the likelihood that they will be independent, productive citizens.
The agency’s financial stability is dependent on a multitude of state and federal grants, and support from foundations and corporations. Girls Inc. of Tarrant County has also been a United Way agency for over 30 years. In addition to these major funding sources, individual donations and special events, Girls Inc. of Tarrant County reinvests the profits earned through our child care programs into the programs and services that fulfill our mission.
