The Junior League is committed to exploring new opportunities that expand its community outreach through Community Assistance Grants.
The Community Assistance Committee evaluates grant applications for projects in the greater Houston community that do not currently receive volunteer support from the League and makes funding recommendations to the League’s Board of Directors for consideration. Specifically, requests that address a critical or basic need, fund a pilot program and/or expand a significant service to the community are considered.
Community Assistance Grants are funded, in part, by the Barbara and Roy Adams Endowed Community Grant Fund held by the Junior League of Houston Foundation. This endowed fund was made possible through a generous estate gift from Barbara Beardmore Adams (1940 – 2014), a Junior League member from 1982 – 2014. The 2019 – 2020 fiscal year was the inaugural year of distribution for this endowed fund that focuses on children’s health and well-being initiatives and literacy/education enrichment.
The focus areas for the 2021 – 2022 Community Assistance Grants are listed below:
- Basic Needs
- Children’s Education
- Abuse/Neglect of Children
- Mentoring Young Girls/Women
