As a group, we pride ourselves not only on our service but on our inclusivity. We’re less of a club and more of a team of like-minded women looking to make Harrisonburg a better community. Any woman regardless of her background, politics, social standing, or level of commitment is welcome to attend our meetings and participate in our organization.

Our History

Since our founding in the 1950s, our team of locally committed volunteers has sought to provide service and support to women and children in need throughout Harrisonburg as well as in our  neighboring counties. Our directive is built on providing the maximum good to our community on a local level. 

Our group is diverse as it is active. Our volunteers come from many different backgrounds, ethnicities, religions, and professions but they all share a passion for service and a desire to make our community a better one. 

Who We Are

Volunteers in our group come from a wide variety of backgrounds, professions, and personal histories. 

However, we all share love for our community and a desire to make it a safe and welcoming home for everyone who lives here. 

 

Our group includes moms, business owners, social activists, teachers, community leaders, and students.   

Our group participates in a variety of volunteer activities throughout the year which include food and clothing drives, soup kitchen service, beautifying and upkeep of local shelters, as well as fundraising with annual auctions and family events. We are non-secular but work closely with local religious organizations that share our mission, and provide grants for organizations and causes that support families and individuals in need of our help. 

 

We also work to raise funds for various causes, primarily through a Holiday Celebration and Golf Tournament held respectively each year in December and May. These events allow us to integrate support from various organizations in the community as well as syphon money towards scholarships, community grants, and outreach missions to help individuals and families in Harrisonburg.

Our goal as a volunteer organization is to do the most good for the women and children of Harrisonburg while providing support and comraderie for our members. 

Our group holds meetings at local Harrisonburg restaurants September through June.
