Who can come?
  • High school girls in every Georgia county from the following homes and programs: Foster homes, group homes, grandparents raising grandchildren, relative care homes, fictive kin, and therapeutic foster homes regardless of per diem. (Please note that non-relative foster teens who are in their pre-adoptive or adoptive home do not qualify if parental rights have been terminated on both biological parents.)
  • Girls must be in high school (grades 9 through 12). No middle school girls will be served.
  • Girls must have a verified reservation and be accompanied by a registered female adult chaperone. Only one chaperone (and/or registered transporter) per teen is allowed and chaperones must show their photo ID to enter the event.  
  • Due to limited space, we cannot allow other children, friends, or family members into this event. Only the prom attendee and her chaperone are allowed to attend. Chaperones may accompany multiple teen girls.
  • No teen girls' biological parents are allowed into this event.
  • Girls in high school ROTC programs who are in foster care, relative care, or group homes are invited. Only one (1) dress allowed per girl regardless of how many events they plan to attend.
  • Girls may keep their dresses and accessories or return them after their prom so that others can use them at a later event.

What will they do?
  • Girls will choose from a selection of beautiful prom dresses to take home for a perfect evening at their own high school prom. The girl's chosen dress must be approved by her chaperone.
  • Special stations will be set up with shoes, shawls, purses, jewelry, hair accessories, and makeup with consultants available to help.
  • A photographer will be present to take a photo of the teen in her chosen attire. Girls are encourage to come with hairstyles that they will feel comfortable in when being photographed with their chosen attire. Strapless bras are recommended when trying on dresses for the best photo outcome.
