A Proud Supporter of The 30th Annual Role Model Dinner
Founded in 1987, the Detroit-based nonprofit Alternatives for Girls works to help high-risk and homeless girls escape violence, exploitation and teen pregnancy. By providing support and resources, they strive to provide opportunities for safety, growth, strength, and healthy choices to the young women in the community.
As a nonprofit, the organization’s programs are largely funded by donations from the community. To raise awareness of and support for the organization, Alternatives For Girls hosts an annual dinner which recognizes local women who have helped create life opportunities for at-risk girls. The Suburban Collection is a proud supporter of the dinner and all that Alternatives For Girls strives to do for Detroit.
At this year’s 30th Annual Role Model Dinner, Alternatives For Girls will award Dr. Althea Simpson, Director of Discipleship at the Franklin Community Church; Lashinda Stair, First Assistant Chief of Police at the Detroit Police Department; and Linda Taliaferro, Vice President of Global Quality at Meritor, Inc.
These three women have provided unprecedented support and inspiration to the young women of Detroit. With varying career paths and areas of focus, they offer a wealth of knowledge to those seeking to get involved in the community and to fight for the well-being of Detroit’s at-risk girls.
