What does the Junior League of Sarasota do?

The Junior League of Sarasota is a non-profit organization of trained, hands-on volunteers that has been working to address some of the most difficult issues Sarasota faces for more than 60 years. You may be familiar with some of our legacy projects, many of which are now separate organizations. We are responsible for the creation of organizations such as Children First, the Child Protection Center and Teen Court; built the first handicapped accessible playground; purchased and stocked household goods for new homes at Harvest House; etc. These are just a few of the charitable works that the Junior League has been a key part of. This year we have a focus on Aging Out of Foster Care.

When we recognize a crisis, our 250+ members turn hard-work and resources into solutions. Every year, hundreds of young adults age out of the foster system without parental guidance to help them establish themselves and their futures. The Junior League of Sarasota is joining the fight to support and assist the youth of the foster care system in Sarasota County by creating an impactful program that will help them obtain the life skills and education necessary to become self-sufficient, live independently, and maintain employment. Attending the Tour of Homes means that you are not only going to have a great time and see some beautiful homes, but you are helping the Junior League of Sarasota help those in the community who need it the most.
