Read Center


Sixth to eighth graders are at the highest risk for not continuing their education. Partnering with Martin Luther King Middle School, we pair our members with at-risk kids to ensure they have the support they need to have a successful school year and a bright future.
Done in a Day


Members of the JLR support other community organizations with woman-power for projects focused on women, children and families. We regularly partner with Hospital Hospitality House, Anna Julia Cooper School, Meals on Wheels, and Richmond Promise Neighborhood, just to name a few.
