Community Impact

For more than a century, the Junior League has been on the forefront of social reform, identifying problems and finding solutions in a collaborative way. The list of issues they’ve tackled is long and complicated, including illiteracy, domestic violence, youth in poverty, and more.

Our approach is simple. Through hands-on training and formal learning opportunities we give women the skills they need to improve the quality of life in the communities they serve. JLH has selected breaking the cycle of poverty and women heads of household as our current community impact focus area, working with partner organizations throughout the Harrisburg community.
