THE GLASS SLIPPER
The Glass Slipper is a non-profit organization that provides life-changing programs for girls in foster care and group homes. The Glass Slipper believes every girl should have the opportunity to discover her full potential. This belief drives our volunteers to provide mentoring and self development programs for at-risk girls, ages 10-18, encouraging transformation from the inside out.
The Glass Slipper seeks out marginalized girls who have experienced abuse (physical, sexual and emotional). We provide a safe environment with mentors who care about them, to restore their hope, inspire them to dream and equip them with the tools to accomplish those dreams.
Operating out of our Citrus Heights location, The Glass Slipper primarily works with girls in foster care and group homes throughout the Sacramento region, including Sacramento, Placer and El Dorado counties. We have begun mentoring other at-risk girls in middle schools and high schools in the Sacramento City Unified School District.
Since its inception in 1997, The Glass Slipper remains fully volunteer operated and receives no permanent funding. All programs, services and supplies are provided free of charge to participants and are made possible by generous volunteers and supporters.
Our mentoring programs are designed to build self-esteem, develop life-skills and teach the value of community service. We believe that all young women have great beauty and worth, and the potential for future success. To learn more about our IMAGE programs and service learning, go to our Programs page or click here.
FOR THE GIRLS
This short video gives a little insight to The Glass Slipper. We would be honored if you would watch and learn more about us. Our founder Jackie Guzman, along with Cassidy, who went through the Glass Slipper program, and some of our wonderful mentors, share what The Glass Slipper does and what it means to them.
