The Junior Women’s Club of Mentor (JWCM) has had a strong presence in Lake County for 53 years. Our continuous community support is primarily due to the smaller non-profit charitable organizations in the area.  In addition, High School and Leaf Scholarships along with an Angel Fund are donated annually.

The women of the JWCM volunteer their time and resources compassionately and selflessly requesting only the support of the members of the community to help us do our work by attending our events, donating cash awards and gifts for our raffles.  

In addition, the JWCM values the safety of our children and has sponsored the Mentor Safety Town for the past 25 years in partnership with the Mentor Fire and Police Departments. State Board certified teachers are hired to instruct the children and local area students volunteer as teen aides.

In addition to Sponsoring Mentor Safety Town, Scholarships, an Angel Fund and volunteerism, donations are made to various organizations including, but not limited to:

Deepwood Foundation
Forbes House
Lake County Victim Assistance Program
Lifeline for the Empowerment of Consumers, Inc.
