Our Approach

HGJWC fulfills its vision of a brighter tomorrow by:

  • Donating funds and resources
  • Hands-on service, extending volunteer opportunities to the community and recognizing volunteer excellence.
  • Fostering educational endeavors
  • Providing a strong network to promote socialization, friendship, personal growth, leadership, and caring.

Our Story

HGJWC was founded in 2010 by Kathy Young and Rachel Chorley, who believed the women of our community had a lot to give. What began as 26 members has since grown to over 60 women and counting.
