Missouri Girls Town is operated by the Missouri Girls Town Foundation, Inc., a private 501 (c) (3) nonprofit founded in 1953 by the General Federation of Women’s Clubs of Missouri. The organization has built a program of parenting and counseling that fits the needs of teenage girls traumatized by abuse and neglect. It provides a continuum of care that ranges from outpatient assessment and counseling for family and children to a residential system that provides year-round care for children of preadolescent ages through high school graduation. Missouri Girls Town is situated on 20 beautiful acres near Kingdom City, Missouri.
The General Federation of Women's Clubs is the world's largest and oldest volunteer organization with over 10 million members worldwide.
