68 years, the Houston Junior
Forum has supported the needs of children, youth and senior
adults in the community through volunteer service and
with financial support.
The Houston Junior
Forum is a nonprofit women's service organization
whose mission and sole purpose is the promotion of educational,
social and recreational activities for Houston's children,
youth and senior adults.
Beginning in 1946 with a reading program
for preschoolers in the public schools of the East End of
Houston, HJF has grown to a membership of nearly 400 women
who provide volunteer and philanthropic services to our
projects as well as other Houston organizations. Since our
inception, HJF has given nearly 1,000,000 hours of community
service and over $10,000,000 in financial support of our
facilities and community volunteer programs.
Over the years, HJF has received numerous
awards including “Outstanding Community Service Organization”
from the Association of Fundraising Professionals, and first
place in Texas for the “Build a Better Community”
contest. In 2011, the Forum received a proclamation from
Texas Governor Rick Perry for outstanding service to the
Houston community. HJF looks forward to a future focused
on transforming the lives of those we serve, enriching the
skills of membership and developing friendships.
The Houston Junior Forum gratefully
acknowledges the financial support of the many local foundations
and corporations whose generosity enables HJF members to serve
so many in the Houston community.
Your support enables HJF to
help secure the future of our projects and those we servein
