The organization is named after Julia C. Hester (1881–1940), a teacher, who opened her home to neighborhood youth. She and her husband, A.Z. Hester, were leaders in the Fifth Ward community, and, although having no children of their own, provided a safe place for all children in the community.

The organization was named to honor Ms. Hester for her contributions and dedication to youth.
