For almost a century, the Junior League of Charlotte, Inc. (JLC) has positively impacted the local community through voluntarism and monetary support of local agency's efforts. The JLC currently focuses on its Healthy Child Initiative (HCI), which promotes and supports the physical, dental and mental health needs of children age 0-17 years and their families.
Healthy Family Initiative Applications and Open House
Beginning in June 2013, the JLC’s initiative will shift from the Healthy Child Initiative to the Healthy Family Initiative. Under the expanded Healthy Family Initiative, the JLC will offer education on family health topics relating to food choices and physical fitness and will provide immunizations and physical examinations for children. The JLC will educate children and their families on the importance of dental health and provide support and/or volunteers to programs which offer dental care or tools for better dental care. The JLC will also offer support to families and children with mental health needs and to services that recognize mental health issues and seek to address and help prevent those issues as well as programs that serve a population utilizing mental health family services.
Applications to become a 2014-2015 JLC Healthy Family Initiative Community Partner are available here and are due July 31, 2013.
A Community Partner Application Open House will be held at the JLC Building on Wednesday, April 24 from 12:00-1:00pm. For more information on the application process and the open house, please contact the JLC Program Development and Evaluation Committee.
