For every girl we currently serve each year, there are so many more who need our help," said Lisa Wright, VP Development, Girls Inc. of Orange County.

Baby boomers know the famous song, “Horse With No Name,” from the early 1970s, but for the nearly 4,000 millennial girls who are served annually by Girl Incorporated of Orange County, the title of the song should be a “Center With No Name.”
“A recent and large donated renovation at Girls Inc. Youth and Family Center in Costa Mesa has inspired us to open up a new opportunity for a company, foundation, family or other private entity to have naming rights for our newly improved Center. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity,” says Lisa Wright, VP Development, Girls Inc. of Orange County. “For every girl we currently serve each year, there so many more who need our help. Now that the building has been renovated, the space is more efficient so that we can serve more girls. A generous naming gift will honor the donor and support programs at the Center that help meet our mission of helping girls become Strong, Smart and Bold.”
The much needed renovations of the 58 year-old building were coordinated by the volunteer efforts of DPR Construction and their 2012 “Rebuilding Together Orange County” project. With labor and supplies estimated at well over $100,000, the month-long renovation included a major reconfiguration of the building interiors to expand programming. Several other upgrades were made throughout the grounds to improve overall safety and accessibility. Newport Beach-based DPR Construction partners with “Rebuilding Together Orange County” on a different charitable construction project each year and draws extensive support from employees and vendors.
