Access Granted Now

"Access Granted Now is committed to accepting each girl where they are and then cooperatively guiding them to present their best self; whether preparing them to return to their families or transitioning to become an independent, thriving successful member of the community. Each child is seen as an individual from the point of entry through their cycle of care with us."

- Ebony King



Access Granted’s girls… they present bearing the emotional and mental scars seeking a place of structure and support. We strive to teach each child to embrace their scars, and use them to ignite change in their own life and the lives of others in their community.

Our mission is to transform the lives of youth while co-creating healthier communities and lifelong partnerships through the provision of quality programs based on the individual emotional, social, spiritual, and education needs of each child.

The AGN was more than just a shelter; it was a place dedicated to holistic development.  We received academic support, participated in enriching activities, and engaged in meaningful therapy sessions. The experience equipped us with the tools we needed to thrive.

Living with other girls who had also faced adversity created an instant bond among us. We formed a sisterhood, a support system unlike any other. Together, we shared our stories, triumphs, and setbacks, creating an environment of empathy, understanding, and encouragement.
