Community Impact

Continuing a 57-year legacy of service in our community, the Junior League of Hampton Roads is excited to lead the Women's Initiative for Success and Empowerment (WISE), a program designed to empower women who are confronting economic uncertainty and adversity.  The initiative's mission is to fill gaps in education and services for women and children that will empower them to improve their lives and those of future generations. The JLHR's goal is to fill needs that are not being met and to focus on projects that have sustainability and a lasting impact.
