Gwen's Girls — Supporting Young African American Women

This September, BlessFest is honored to be working with and giving to a Pittsburgh, PA non-profit called Gwen's Girls. 


Gwen's Girls' mission is to empower girls and young women to have healthier, more productive lives through holistic programming. While Gwen's Girls serves girls and young women of all races from ages 8–18, the majority of the girls in their programs are African American as they are the population most in need of services in Pittsburgh.


For 18 years, Gwen's Girls has been committed to helping these young girls become more healthy, self-sufficient adults equipped with the capacity to continuously evolve emotionally, physically and spiritually. Gwen's Girls supports girls in need with education, health and wellness, life skills, female awareness, leadership and development, family life, spirituality, cultural enrichment, community service and recreation.
