The girls are outfitted with everything they need for the prom, including limos, dresses and a complete style makeover.

“I want these young women to know they're beautiful and the beauty comes from within, they just have to let it out. Sometimes they lack a little confidence," Ashton said. "They’ve been in situations that are beyond their control. And I just want to give them something to rise above."

“When I posted a picture everyone was like, 'who is that girl?' I was just like 'that’s me.' Everyone was freaking out, 'that’s not you.' I was like that’s totally me!" said Trinity Rigney, one of the girls who got a prom makeover.
