Building For The Great In Every Girl
A Capital Campaign for Pace Center for Girls of Clay County
Pace Center for Girls Clay originally opened in borrowed space from Hibernia Baptist Church in January 2015, before moving to a small rental space. As our reputation and community support continued to grow, the current leased space became home to Pace Clay.
Pace provides an environment where girls can flourish. Pace offers a safe, nurturing environment that celebrates girls and understands how they learn and develop. Girls spend an average of 24 months in the Pace program until they are ready to be reintegrated into the school system or move on to higher education or a career. The model is recognized as one of the most effective programs in the country for keeping girls from entering the juvenile justice system.
The new location will dramatically improve Pace’s ability to meet the needs of the next generation of girls. Its design will reflect and support Pace’s gender-responsive and trauma-informed programming and anticipates what will be needed now, as well as in the future.
