The Grand Open House

Girls Inc. of Wayne County

Wednesday, September 20th


1407 S. 8th St., Richmond, IN

Girls Inc. has moved, and it’s time to celebrate! Mark your calendars, because on Wednesday, September 20th from 5:00-7:00pm, you’re invited to tour our new location and see the first of many exciting renovations that have taken place.

Girls Inc. participants, staff and Board members will all be on hand to answer questions and to provide short guided tours. Thanks to a generous donation from Ullery’s Homemade Ice Cream, you can enjoy a frozen treat, too! The event is free and open to the public, so invite the whole family to check it out.

Why the big move? Well, after multiple years of reaching our maximum capacity and eventually having to turn families away, we were hearing the community’s request for growth. So we purchased our new facility at 1407 S. 8th St. and began the first of our planned renovations in preparation for our 2017 Summer Session.

If you checked out Girls Inc.’s last article for GoWayne County, you might have discovered that our organization is almost 50 years old. So then would you believe that we were located in our former building on 10th St. for almost 20 of those 50 years? That’s right. And with such a big change, we want to make sure that the community stays in the loop.

So if you, a community member, have any questions, feel free to reach out to me, Erica Coulter, Development, Marketing and Communications Director at or (765) 962-2362. We hope to see you there!
