Grateful Girls is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is geared to inspire, motivate and encourage girls, teens and women of all ages.


We understand that one of the most pivotal moments in a woman's life is between the age of 12-25. The decisions they make during this time have a lasting effect on the rest of their lives. One of our goals is to provide young ladies within this age group the support they need to become extraordinary women and excel with their God-given gifts. 

Our organization provides tools such as mentoring, life coaching, social services and volunteer work to foster successful God-fearing women. We believe that the cultivation of young women will make a positive impact on families, neighborhoods and the community.  Nominated by Katie Meylink
