Girls Night Out
“Girls Night Out” brings together Darien High School girls, and women of all ages living at Ginis House, a Families in Recovery Program (FIRP) in Norwalk CT who are in recovery for various addictions. This award-winning program is run on the Enhancement Grant from the Sate of Connecticut Department of Education. FIRP is a 10-family, long-term inpatient program unique to Fairfield County welcoming pregnant and parenting women and their children keeping the family together during treatment. Respect Works and ONE LOVE/DHS Chapter also attend. Twice a month these ladies meet to share a meal and conversation and some fun team bonding activities; focusing on empowerment, strength and well being, and occasionally take field trips together. The older high school girls recruit younger girls to join each year.
“Girls Night Out” meets every other Monday at 6:00-8:00 pm throughout the school year.
