Hope For Some Homeless Girls

“As the first Girl Scout troop in New York designed specifically for homeless girls, Troop 6000 began in February as a modest effort to help bring a sense of community, if not normalcy, to the 100 families with children who lived in a Queens shelter…”-The Christian Science Monitor

Girls living in a homeless shelter in New York City have found hope and friendship through the creation of their own Girl Scouts Troop. It all started with one homeless mother, Giselle Burgess,wanting to create something positive for her girls and others living in a homeless shelter and now there is funding for Girl Scout Troops to be established in an additional 14 homeless shelters in NYC.

Troop 6000 appeared on The View and received some special support:
