Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support. 

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Quality: We are committed to ethical practices that effectively provide the highest level of quality service.

Community: We have a community based on trust, teamwork, accessibility and the desire for social change for the purpose of improving our larger community.

Health: We believe in maintaining individual and organizational health through personal development and empowerment.

We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.
