History:

Celebrating 103 years of service!

Our organization enjoys a rich history with roots which can be traced back to 1912 as the Taunton Girls Club, originally  servicing young women searching for friendship and improvement.  Through decades of service, the organization also operated as the Taunton Girls Recreation Center and enjoyed affiliation with the Girls Club of America and finally Girls Incorporated. Today we service over 200 girls annually through after-school, summer and outreach programs and a total of over 300 annually through advocacy,  special events and community activism.
