Gyrls residing in urban areas considered “hood” are often at a disadvantage in life. Not because they are less than but because they are under-served, undervalued, and their communities are not adequately invested in.

Gyrls In The H.O.O.D Foundation works with teenage gyrls to provide them with the Reproductive Health education, resources, and tools needed to make responsible life choices.

Join Gyrls In The H.O.O.D Foundation and receive access to our "Degrees B4 TM Diapers" course, group outings, community service projects and H.O.O.D Kits.  Through our HOODbassador program you will also get connected to a team of people waiting to help you navigate H.O.O.D life.
