A year into her role as the new executive director of Gwen’s Girls, the organization founded by her mother, the late Gwendolyn J. Elliott, Kathi Elliott has infused an increased energyinto the organization  and is working to strengthen its mission allowing a more enhanced delivery.

With the same specific goal of empowering girls and young women to have productive lives, Kathi Elliot and her staff embrace innovative ways to insure actualization of its vision that girls become self-sufficient adults, equipped and capable of evolving emotionally, physically and spiritually.

With a fresh approach that includes a concentrated focus on achieving equity for Black girls, and additional programming and revamping previous programs, the goal is to make for a more successful environment for the agency and its young women.
