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

Rosayah's Story

Since enrolling at Pace in 2022, Rosayah says, “I have become a better version of myself. I remember when I couldn’t stay in class or school for a whole day.” Rosayah struggled in school, often spending time with a social worker until she could leave for the day. “Pace has helped me learn new coping skills that distract me when I’m feeling bad again. I have real friends who care about and genuinely enjoy being around me.”
