KFACT is changing the lives of girls in the Rockford area – girls who have lived a life of trauma and are often forgotten throughout society. And, without KFACT, may be living a very different story. With the empowerment of KFACT, our girls are strong young ladies who will break the cycle of poverty and trauma with continued services and mentorship.
Girls are our focus! Why Girls? KFACT targets girls between the ages of 12-18 years of age. Early adolescent girls are an extremely vulnerable population and have the hardest time just being a girl. Many girls suffer from peer pressure, low-self-esteem, generational poverty, inequality and frequently, trauma-filled pasts.
KFACT has provided services to over 250 girls and their families in the mentoring program. KFACT provides services to girls in middle and high school while ensuring completion of post-secondary education for our college girls!
