PACE Center for Girls, Lee County
PACE is a nationally recognized juvenile delinquency prevention program for teenage girls facing challenges such as abuse, foster care, academic failure, and involvement with the criminal justice system. At PACE, girls find a supportive environment focusing on their strengths through a gender-responsive approach that centers on the emotional and physical safety and well-being of each girl. As a result, approximately 90% of girls that attend PACE have no involvement with the criminal justice system a year after transitioning from the day program. This translates into significant savings for taxpayers, and more importantly, it means that girls who have been victimized now have the confidence and skills to become our future leaders and positive forces for change.
