"When you believe in yourself, anything is possible and PEARLS helped me learn to do that,"         -Austiana, PEARLS alumnae and past staff member

If 100 girls in the Milwaukee community believed that same thing about herself, that she "can do anything" and possessed the tools to do that, could you imagine the impact, not just on Milwaukee but the world?  Could you help us help 100 of the 1,900 girls we plan to serve this year, reach their full potential and realize the sky is the limit?

"Throughout my high-school years and while I worked to raise my four siblings, having PEARLS be my support was indescribable. I could come to PEARLS for whatever my needs were at the time: a shoulder to cry on, someone to really hear me, someone to talk to, or a fountain of knowledge to learn how to prepare for jobs, scholarships and college," said Austiana. "PEARLS is my home away from home. Practicing the PEARLS attributes "L" for “Leadership” and "S" for “Support", I ask that you please consider making a gift to PEARLS to continue the programming that has been so transformational to me and thousands of other girls in Milwaukee."
