We finished our 4th quarter programming and funding despite the 2020 Pandemic. ABSF managed to continue to provide great virtual activities for our teen girls and virtual fundraisers to keep us going. Thank you to all who have supported in any capacity during this challenging year for us all. We truly could not do what we do without you!
End of the 4th Quarter 2020
As we have mentioned before, we are committed to bridge the gap to help our motherless teens by using our three core communicative opportunities. 1. Monthly classes 2. Weekly mentorship and 3. Love packages given for daily use
Our GOAL Girls Empowherment Monthly Class

Our GOAL Girls monthly workshop topic of discussion on emotional intelligence just ended. Our CEO & Founder, Tragil taught the four types of emotional intelligence:

1) Self-awareness

2) Self-management

3) Social awareness

4) Relationship management

Each type was taught in detail for the last four months. Tragil taught IQ and EI have advantages and are keys to success. Thank you to our November guest and ultimate GOAL Girl who shared her testimony, Kenisha Anthony, Florida resident and author of Labeled: Ward of the State. Thank you to our December guest and ultimate GOAL Girl who shared her testimony, Tiffany Carroll, successful Kansas City native and Houston, Texas resident.
Our Love Packages For Daily Use  

Thanksgiving Edition
We successfully delivered our monthly love gift care packages to all of our GOAL Girls.  We were so excited to be able to provide each girl with a meal for four to share with their family.  
Christmas Edition
This year due to the pandemic we were unable to do our shop till you drop/mall takeover. Instead, we chose to keep the girls safe by mailing their Christmas gifts to them all (gift cards). To continue with our theme of gratitude this year for the first time ever we included “gratitude gifts to guardians.”  We believe this act of kindness from the girls will help cultivate their relationships and show their appreciation to their guardians.
A HUGE thank you to ALL who supported by donating funds or In-kind donations to make our love packages a reality for our girls. Take a peak at what our love packages consists of in the video below.

Annual Coat & Toy Drive

Wait there is one last event of the year! We are partnering once again with CT Marsmillow and Bank Financial to provide new toys and coats for those in need in the Chicagoland area. Adult and Youth coats are being accepted. For pick up information contact Mr. Dee at (708) 441-5355.

Due to the Pandemic all donations will be picked up for distribution.
