We’re Focused on What Matters Most Right Now in the Greater Bridgeport Area

At the Junior League of Eastern Fairfield County we live in the moment. To us, that means adjusting our focus according to our community’s most pressing needs. Our work is always evolving, and that keeps us on our toes, striving for progress, and preparing to take on whatever comes next.

Our current community goal of healthy families, healthy futures can be achieved by creating projects that bring our League and our community together. Right now, we are focusing on fundraising and growing and training our members to achieve this, and are working to develop a new community project to do so in 2020 and beyond.

Our goal is to help the women of Eastern Fairfield County develop civic leadership skills through the work they do, and put those talents to work in the communities that need it. Our current focus gives women opportunities to grow, while positively impacting the communities where they live and work.

We’re Transforming Communities in Eastern Fairfield County By Challenging the Status Quo

No matter where we’re currently focusing, The Junior League of Eastern Fairfield County’s work centers around improving our local communities through effective action and leadership. We have identified healthy families, healthy futures as the most pressing issue in our community right now, and we are helping local women take action to resolve it.
