Our History

In the 1990s, Fort Bend County was an area experiencing tremendous growth, ranked in the top five fastest growing counties in the nation. As the population grew, the needs of the county grew as well. While a number of service organizations already existed to support the Greater Houston area, there was not one specifically dedicated to meeting the needs of Fort Bend County.

Recognizing this need, an enthusiastic group of women came together in the summer of 2000 to form a service organization in which they could focus their time and energy to promote, support, and fulfill the needs of Fort Bend County.

With the help of community leaders, a new program for local volunteers was born, and the newly formed FBJSL has continued to grow each year since inception.

These founding members and their passion for community service helped pave the way to establishing FBJSL as the caring, committed, and recognizable organization it is today!
