A place where respect, equality, opportunity, justice and peace prevail. An intimate look into Girls Inc of Sarasota.

“A place where respect, equality, opportunity, justice and peace prevail.” This is only a fraction of the oath the young girls at the Sarasota Girls Inc promised as Commissioner Suzanne Atwell swore in the young and newly appointed Dream Harbor commissioners.
