In August 2017, Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee launched Troop 6000, an initiative that serves homeless girls and is modeled after similar troops launched earlier in the year in New York City. Troops meetings will take place at local shelters and schools with the highest population of MNPS’s HERO (Homeless Education Resources Outreach) students.

Through this initiative, girls currently living in shelters, affordable housing, hotels, and other low-income or temporary living spaces have an opportunity to engage in Girl Scouts by participating in focused troop programming for their specific needs. This program allows girls to participate in badge earning, outdoor experiences, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), community service, field trips, and Girl Scout traditions and celebrations.
