High school guidance counselors, at-risk youth agencies, group homes, and church outreaches make the program available to their constituents. Over 1,800 girls benefited in 2013 from 53 different schools and nonprofit youth organizations across Long Island.
The Prom Boutique is made possible in part by a grant from JP Morgan Chase Employee Volunteerism & Giving Program.
