Junior Auxiliary gives primary consideration to children, therefore requiring each chapter to have at least one Child Welfare Project for which it has full administrative responsibility. Project must provide one more of the basic necessities of life such as food, clothing, shelter, and/or emotional support; and there must be an ongoing relationship and commitment established between the Chapter members and the recipient to qualify. Along with the Child Welfare Project, the National Association of Junior Auxiliary’s develops a National Focus – our current focus is “keeping it real in a virtual world”.
Each year the Junior Auxiliary of Tipton County develops projects based upon the Child Welfare Project and the National Focus,and evaluates our community’s needs to focus our year’s work.
