Organizations We Support
West Morris Junior Women's Club is proud to support a variety of causes in our local community.
Below are some examples of charities where our fundraising efforts have assisted previously.
2020 WMJWC Annual Fundraiser Recipient:
Homeless Solutions - Morristown
For the homeless and working poor in our community, hope begins at Homeless Solutions, Inc. where they offer shelter, services, and supportive housing to homeless and low-income people. A private, non-profit organization, Homeless Solutions has been helping those in need since 1983. Their case managers offer the support needed to help our guests rebuild their lives and successfully return to independent living. They develop permanent supportive housing that is energy efficient for very low, low, and moderate-income families and individuals. Their motto is: A handUP, not a handOUT. In America, 2.5 million children (1 out of every 30) are homeless each year. Homeless Solutions aims to reduce that number and help those affected by homelessness in our community.
2019 WMJWC Annual Fundraiser Recipient:
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Morris and Sussex Counties
CASA serves as a strong voice for the best interests of vulnerable children who have been removed from their homes or are under court supervision due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment. They provide Court-Appointed Special Advocates to speak up for the best interests of all children in the Morris-Sussex court system so they may find permanent, safe, and nurturing homes as well as have access to all the services they are entitled. CASA understands that it is vital for every child to have a voice - and that every child is an individual with unique needs. CASA serves as their voice.
