About G.O girls Inc: G.O girls, Inc. was originally started by founder and current Executive Director Brettney Duck, it was her vision to see young women come together to empower each other through volunteerism, peer-support, and solidarity; while still focusing on the importance of being an individual. G.O girls aimed to encouraged young women to “be the change they would like to see”. As time progressed Brettney noticed the lack of services for young women “aging” out of the foster care system.

G.O girls now addresses the critical need for supportive services for young women transitioning from foster care into adulthood.
