Community Impact

Strong Women.  Strong Families.

Strong Women, Strong Families is a program in which we strive to improve the health profile of the community by facilitating relationships with the medical community and educating the community on healthy food preparation.

Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run is a program for third to fifth grade girls designed to improve their self-image, health behaviors, and physical activity habits. JLWS volunteers mentor and encourage girls to become healthy and confident young women.


The mission of BookWORM is to collect new and gently used books from our members and the greater community and to facilitate their distribution to children who have limited or no access to books in their homes.
