            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.

         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.
