Message from our Leadership
During the 2016-2017 Junior League year, members of the Junior League of Fresno committed to going “All In.” In our inaugural year of focusing our community efforts solely on advocating for and making improvements in the lives of children who are living in foster care and who will eventually “age-out” of the system, we developed our signature program and developed deeper relationships with local organizations. We have taken a passionate stance to make a lasting difference in the lives of “California’s kids,” while training our membership about the foster care system, the potential outcomes of aging out and developing our own leadership and personal skills. Throughout the year we have learned the risks of human trafficking in Fresno County, what it means to be a servant-leader, the effects of life on the street as a homeless woman, and heard stories of perseverance and hope from former foster children.
These accomplishments and more are outlined in this report were made possible because of our members, community partners, and the generous support of our donors and sponsors. Whether you are a member, community partner, donor or beneficiary of the League, your contributions are making a difference in the lives of the women and children in Fresno County.
It is our pleasure to serve,
Rachel Kuhtz Melinda Scott
President 2016-2017 President 2017-2018
