Addressing Challenges and

Expanding Opportunity for Girls of Color

We believe

every girl deserves the best opportunity to achieve

her dreams, regardless of what zip code she is born in.

What Our Girls Are Up Against:
  • Girls of color drop out of high school at a higher rate, even those with disabilities.

 

  • They are suspended more often than girls of any other race or ethnicity.

 

  • They face higher rates of poverty and are paid less once they start working.

 

  • They are more likely to be committed to the juvenile justice system.

 

  • In addition to academic disenfranchisement, they suffer from sexual abuse and STD cases at alarming rates greater than their white or male counterparts.

 

  • In Philadelphia public schools, when students suffer traumas and seek guidance, the counselor’s office is often empty. The counselor-to-student ratio in Philadelphia is one of the worst in the country.

 

We know girls aren't getting the individual help they need.

 

You can make a difference. 

Contribute to The Evoluer House and its mission of developing confident, productive, goal-achieving women. Serving Philadelphia's inner-city girls between the ages of 13 and 18, we recently celebrated the graduation of the 1,300th girl from life-changing programs. All of our graduates finish high school on time and 90% have gone on to attend a four-year college. Many have even gone on to earn advanced degrees.

 

But for every girl wanting to enroll in our life-changing program, two are waiting to get in.

 

By donating today, you are helping empower, protect and save marginalized, unreached and vulnerable girls in Philadelphia when they face unprecedented challenges—financial instability, poor education, and violent neighborhoods. 

 

Make a tax-deductible donation to The Evoluer House today! Your donation will fund our programs and help ensure that girls have opportunities and experiences to thrive.
