Ashleigh and the women of the Junior League volunteer year-round to provide important services to children in foster care in Sebastian County and surrounding areas. JLFS provides monthly life skills class taught to youth ages 14-21 who are in foster care. The classes include such topics as health and personal hygiene, how to find housing, obtaining a job, basic financial skills, vehicle maintenance, etc. Each month JLFS presents the assigned topic and may have speakers relevant to that topic present to the youth, and allow the youth to ask questions and learn more.
In 2018, Ashleigh proposed the Junior League of Fort Smith Scholarship, which was approved by the League and now provides necessary funding for foster youth to attend college. For more information on the Scholarship and how to donate, please click below:
Ashleigh is currently serving as a Board member with The Community Services Clearinghouse, Inc. Since 1979, this organization has provided assistance to cancer and hospice patients, the elderly, the disabled, and children as well as working families.
The Clearinghouse is perhaps best known in the area as the provider of the MEALS FOR KIDS Backpack Program. Each week the Clearinghouse prepares and distributes over 2,800 backpacks of food to children in the area schools so they have food for the weekend. This program alone costs about $400,000 a year to operate
The Clearinghouse serves five counties in Arkansas and two in Oklahoma. They are Crawford, Sebastian, Logan, Scott and Franklin in Arkansas and Leflore and Sequoyah in Oklahoma. We have a food pantry of both non-perishable and fresh or frozen foods for the same population.
