Throughout our 90-year history, our 800+ members have continued to research community needs, identify problems, and develop effective and responsive projects to address those problems. In 1925, JLGR began by a group of visionary women committed to serving the Grand Rapids community. Today, the same commitment to women and children continues with current JLGR projects, including Kids in the Kitchen and the JL Wellness Adventure Yard.
