The Year in Review Expanded Off-site Programs New Partnership with City of Santa Fe Because of your support, we continue to expand our off-site programs to additional locations within the public schools. This spring, 125 girls were served with impact at Ortiz Middle School, Capital High School, Devargas Middle School, Salazar Elementary, El Camino Real Academy, Santa Fe Indian School, and Youth Development Program. The City of Santa Fe operates a summer recreational day camp and this summer, Girls Inc. was invited to serve girls ages 6-14 years old at the Monica Roybal Youth Center. Because your support provided the critical funds needed to hire additional off-site staff, we were able to answer the call. Our Community Outreach Coordinator, Rebecca Calhoun, facilitated activities specifically designed to build self esteem, team building, and communication skills. By the end of the summer, 54 girls had received the Girls Inc. Experience with impact (100 hours or more of programming)! New Staff Additions Carolyn Chambers, Chief Operating Officer Carolyn relocated from New York City to join the staff at Girls Inc. of Santa Fe as our Chief Operating Officer in May 2017. Carolyn was previously the Associate Executive Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights, where she supervised the Administrative Department, overseeing the human resources, finances, IT, and facilities management needs of the organization. Gabrielle Chapman, Development Assistant Prior to joining the Girls Inc. team Gabrielle spent 3 years working as a Service Coordinator with Youth Shelters helping homeless youth. She received her undergraduate education at Bowling Green State University. Sandra Chavez, Off-site Coordinator Sandra was born and raised in Santa Fe. She first joined Girls Inc. in 2009 as a summer camp facilitator and continued as a part time facilitator for five years working with the younger girls. Sandra then took a break from work to become a mom to “the best son anyone could ask for.” Sandra has returned to Girls Inc. of Santa Fe as a full time Off-site Coordinator working with girls ages 9-13. New Marcy Street Offices Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we were able to move our administrative offices out of the cramped spaces at Hillside and into a much roomier space located only one block away on Marcy Street. Our executive, development, and operational staff are thrilled to have a more functional physical work environment that will allow us to hone in on our goal of tripling the number of girls served by 2021. The space is funded for two years. To celebrate our new Marcy Street location, we held an open house that was generously funded by an anonymous donor. The open house hosted over 75 guests who all had a fabulous time toasting to the future of girls in Santa Fe. A huge thanks to all who attended.
