JLMC Supports Mental Health

Junior League of Morgan County

The Junior League of Morgan County (JLMC) is pleased to announce its latest philanthropic partnership with The Albany Clinic, an outpatient clinic of the Mental Health Center of North Central Alabama, Inc. (MHCNCA) that specializes in serving children and their families. The Albany Clinic will be supported as JLMC’s signature project for the next two years through fundraising endeavors and donated volunteer hours of service by Junior League members.

Selection Criteria for Signature Project

In addition to its longtime partnership with local non-profit PACT (Parents and Children Together), JLMC periodically selects an area organization to support as a signature project.

The following criteria are considered closely in each signature project selection:

  • Located in Morgan County
  • Promotes an increased sense of well-being for the community
  • Supports the needs of women, children, and families in the area

Through this collaborative philanthropy effort, the women of Junior League have committed to the remodeling and updating of the Albany Clinic facility.

By fundraising on behalf of the Albany Clinic for the next two years, JLMC hopes to create an environment of acceptance and comfort by making the facility’s appearance more approachable and kid-friendly.

Additional Community Support

In addition to the funds that Junior League will raise for The Albany Clinic, JLMC will also continue its support of the Decatur Morgan Hospital Foundation’s fundraisers, including the Power of Pink Walk and the Power of Pink Luncheon.

Fall Fundraiser

On October 26, 2018, the Junior League will host the fifth annual Bacon and Brew fundraiser at City View Estates on Old Moulton Road.
