The Girls Place of Gainesville, Florida would like to announce the hiring of our new Development Director, Laura Javidi. Since moving to Gainesville in 2002, Laura has held the Development Director position at the Boys & Girls Club of Alachua County and is also a Group Fitness Instructor at Gainesville Health & Fitness. With over a decade of experience in community relations, marketing, fundraising and non-profit management, Laura will be a key element for the Girls Place implementing their new vision and role within the community.

"The dollars that we receive from sponsorships, from federal grants, from county grants, from city grants, from individual donors, all play a vital, vital role in maintaining what we have overall," she said.
