State of Junior Civic Association

Today Tampa Heights Junior Civic Association is facing the challenge of providing continued services to the very needy population. The demand is high; the need is great; and funding is becoming more and more limited. The association has done a good job with its past funding. It is now in need of more funding to continue the job that it has been doing over the past years. Investment in this organization means investment in the lives of those who truly need the assistance and investment where it really makes a difference.
