About Girls Service League, Inc.

Girls Service League is a Fort Worth, Texas, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization focused on empowering women through college scholarships. Since 1919, we have been blazing a trail to help thousands of women by investing in their futures. And, since 1978, we’ve provided over $2,000,000 in college scholarships to our area's future leaders, helping young women as they pursue their life, career, and education aspirations.


Girls' Protective Association is created and eventually becomes a part of the Fort Worth Welfare Association.


The organization changes its name to the Girls' Service League.


GSL provided residential homes and schooling for young girls. They also provided home for working women.


By 1979, all properties held by GSL were sold.  This included 2 residential homes for girls as young as 12 and one home for older employed women.


Girls Service League celebrates 100 years with a reception at Thistle Hill - the only original residential house still standing.


GSL continues to empower women, having helped thousands since inception, and providing over $2million in college scholarships since 1978.
