Girls Inc. Limestone was founded as Big Sisters of Kingston in 1972 by a small group of women dedicated to improving the life situation of girls in the Kingston community. Since that time, we have grown to serve more than 1,400 girls each year. We have expanded our life-skills education programs, and have taken on a new name and a new national organization. These changes have led to significant growth, and a better ability to meet the needs of girls and young women in our community.
