Since that time, Pace Lee has served hundreds of girls throughout Lee County through our academic Day Program and Pace Reach programs.

Stories from Pace Lee

Shade's Story

Shade came to Pace after living in a dysfunctional home environment. By the time she was placed in a stable home environment, she was skipping school, failing 7th grade, and at risk of not being promoted to the 8th grade. Now, as a result of Pace, Shade has nearly perfect attendance, an A/B average, and has learned to advocate for herself and Pace in the community. “I don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t come to Pace.”
