Just Us Girls PhotoChildren and adolescents with disabilities are two to three times more likely to be bullied than their non-disabled peers. Isolation and loneliness compound their vulnerability. Just Us Girls at Seven Hills is a unique skills development program for girls with special needs who struggle to create relationships and real friendships, at least in part because of their disabilities. Just Us Girls uses evidence-based, best-practice curricula to explore and teach important topics that promote mental and physical well-being and safety, with an emphasis on healthy relationships.

Just Us Girls programming could not enhance the lives of the girls who participate without our generous funders. We want to wish a heartfelt thanks to the Women’s Initiative of the United Way of Central MA and the DCU for Kids!
