Welcome To Junior Auxiliary of Jonesboro

Junior Auxiliary of Jonesboro, AR is a non-profit, volunteer, service organization that serves the needs of children, youth and families in Craighead County. We are a part of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries, which serves communities through 99 chapters in 8 southern states. As individuals and a chapter, we at JA of Jonesboro look for ways to improve the lives of children by developing and implementing programs to meet emotional, physical, and educational needs. This is accomplished through community service projects in the health, welfare, civic, educational and cultural fields and by working closely with schools and other organizations in our community that help us identify needs and meet them. We hope that you will take a moment to explore our website and see what we are doing and what we’re all about.
