Junior League of Manatee County has made a commitment to raise awareness, develop educational programing and directly serve members of our community that are experiencing varying degrees of poverty issues.

30% of Manatee County residents are in danger of falling into poverty.

Of the Manatee County households living in poverty, 37% are led by a single woman.

Funds raised through the Little Black Dress Initiative will help the Junior League of Manatee County continue to provide health centered education and activities to those challenged by poverty.
