Every year, Junior League of Annapolis partners with two strong community organizations or government entities that have, or would like to develop, a new project that can be developed in conjunction with, and supported by, JLA. The project must meet local community needs and should align with the JLA focus area of “Self-Sufficiency of Women and Children.”
Community Projects Underway
JLA has teamed with Serenity Sistas’ program, Coaching For Life, whose mission is to provide women in recovery from alcohol or substance abuse with a chance to re-enter life.

Serving women in Annapolis, aged 18 to 25, with a primary focus on clients with an opioid addiction.
JLA is partnering with the Anne Arundel County Partnership for Children, Youth and Families to establish a Community of
Hope in the Brooklyn Park community, an area which has the highest need and least resources in the county. Our objectives are to help develop and establish, together with community members, various initiatives which promote healthy and successful children and families.
These one-time special projects are completed in a short period of time and meet a specific community need in Anne Arundel County that is in sync with JLA’s mission and community programs. JLA welcomes local community organizations to learn more and view the DIAD project application to submit a project idea anytime of the year! Applications will be reviewed by the JLA Done In A Day (DIAD) committee, and organizations will be notified if they have been selected.
