Ruth K. Solomon Girls
Established in 1966, the Heartland Family Service Ruth K. Solomon Girls (RKSG) program is the oldest community program in Omaha serving girls and young women. Even as our program continues to evolve, our commitment to the mission remains the same: inspiring girls to discover their individuality, helping them develop their full potential, and achieving a sense of responsibility to themselves, their families, and their community.
The new RKSG program model was developed with feedback from families in the community. The RKSG program is a year-round, community place-based model where program resources are shared with various well-established community locations, such as churches, community centers, and other out-of-school time community programs. The program supports the needs of girls and young women to empower them to be their best selves, by developing leadership skills, literacy, and artistic expression. It also serves as a support network for the girls and their parents. The RKSG program provides therapeutic groups, mindfulness activities, community events, and support resources that benefit the girls and their families throughout the year.
To provide the best program content that encourages growth and meets community needs, collaboration between RKSG staff and community connections and partnerships continues throughout the year.
Eligibility: Girls and young women ages 5-18 who attend a local school in Douglas County in Nebraska.
