This committee works with their community partner to ideate, plan, and implement one program per quarter for the families of Forward Foundation. These programs are in-person and hosted at JLR HQ, which gives us a space for food, parents, and their children. Forward Foundation works with single parents who don’t qualify for government assistance but had a recent life event that left them needing help. There is no set age range, or gender. Our programs vary but currently are focused in the professional and personal development space.

This committee partners with Shalom Farms and the YWCA to connect women served by the YWCA with locally-grown produce, food boxes with nutritious ingredients, recipes, and essential kitchen tools and supplies.

Population(s) Served

This program connects with community partners to plan single day and ongoing short projects, in order to offer service and engagement with the Richmond area. Committee may also have one-to-two subcommittees that work directly with specific community partners on long-term and/or monthly programs, such as Kids in the Kitchen.

Population(s) Served

This committee works in conjunction with REAL LIFE to connect with women in the greater Richmond community who need female comradery, education around infant and child care, and a support network as they navigate the transition from incarceration, addiction issues, housing insecurity, and/or poverty. This program will help to empower underserved women and provide resources, education, and conversation around topics that are most applicable.

Population(s) Served

The Junior League of Richmond also hosts an array of public events that serve to enhance community while also generating funding for our ongoing volunteer work in the Richmond area. Touch a Truck is a unique interactive one-day event which allows children to see, touch, and explore their favorite big trucks and vehicles and meet the personnel who protect, build, and serve the Richmond community.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

The Junior League of Richmond (JLR) operates one store that generate funds for JLR programs in our community and membership training. Sales are made possible entirely by the generosity of donations of clothing, household items, and furnishings by our members and the community at large.

Since opening its doors over 70 years ago, The Clothes Rack quickly grew to become the Junior League of Richmonds #1 fundraiser. In the last 25 years, The Clothes Rack has returned more than $2 million to the Richmond community. While our community programs funded by The Clothes Racks profits have been diverse over the years, the goal of the store has always been the same to provide new and nearly new merchandise at affordable prices to the community.

Data
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
