Nonprofits in Action: The 2020 Design Showcase

Co.act has partnered with Design Core to create an installation that explores design as a vehicle for communicating the social impact of the work of local nonprofit, Alternatives for Girls (AFG). AFG was paired with Design Network member Laura Lybeer-Hilpert to create a colorful display to highlight a message of hope and uplift the girls in the program.
Kicking off this 4-month installation AFG has launched a text to donate campaign to encourage Detroiters to step up and help support thier mission.
Text GIRLS to 345345 to give!
Founded in 1987, Alternatives For Girls helps homeless and high-risk girls and young women avoid violence, teen pregnancy and exploitation; and helps them explore and access the support, resources and opportunities necessary to be safe, to grow strong and to make positive choices in their lives.
