"My time here at Girls Inc. has allowed me to get to know one of the girls named Dylan. When I first got to know her she was very quick to get frustrated and overwhelmed, which would typically lead to outbursts and would typically disrupt the class. Several months later I have recognized when she is frustrated that she displays new coping strategies like stepping away, or talking to a friend. She is now able to regroup herself and join the activity at hand. She has become stronger and bolder throughout her time here and I can see it. Although she may still get upset sometimes and want to lash out, she also shares her bright and humorous personality throughout the day with other girls and staff. We believe this may have something to do with our partnerships with CALM and Hearts (Therapeutic) and we couldn't be happier to have them both "in our corner".
