Community Projects 2017-2018


The Junior League will give approximately $32,000 back to the community through our projects AND Community Assistance Fund grants.  More than 5,000 volunteer hours will be given this fiscal year to the community projects listed below, as well as Golf Classic 2017 fundraiser, Best of Texas fundraiser, and the Kids in the Kitchen Wellness Event:


Heal the City
Heal the City Clinic is a medical mission providing free quality urgent medical care and referral services with compassion and dignity to the uninsured of our community.  Our vision:  To provide for the medical needs of the uninsured while connecting them to the existing health community.
 
Hope and Healing Place
JLA volunteers are specially trained by the Hope & Healing Place in leadership and grief facilitator training sessions.  They then serve as support group leaders, participate in new family orientation and other duties associated with the support program.  Grant funds will be used towards program supplies and program support.  Volunteers also have an opportunity to help with a summer grief camp.

Medical Center League House: JLA Signature Project    806-358-3759
Medical Center League House provides housing, comfort and support to families with an adult patient going through medical treatments in Amarillo, Texas.  There is a nightly charge of $45.00 to stay in one of the 31 private rooms.  For non-medical stays, the nightly charge is $50 (people coming for funerals, visiting nursing homes, assisted living and retirement centers, etc.)  This includes a living room with a TV, kitchen, dining room, laundry facilities at no charge, a multipurpose room, a prayer garden and WiFi available throughout the building. In addition to these amenities, staying at the Medical Center League House offers something perhaps even more significant- a nurturing and compassionate house.  JLA volunteers provide volunteer support to the MCLH by participating in any necessary capacity.
