Welcome to the Award Winning South Suburban Chicago Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated’s website. Our chapter was organized in 1976 and has been recognized for our outstanding children’s programming and providing scholarships to local high school students in the South Suburban Chicago community.

Jack & Jill of America, Incorporated is a National Organization which was organized on January 24, 1938 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by the late Marion Stubbs Thomas. Today the organization is comprised of over 230 chapters nationwide with over 40,000 family members.

The mission of our organization is dedicated to nurturing future African-American leaders by strengthening children through leadership development, volunteer service, philanthropic giving and civic duty. This is achieved through organizing activities and community service initiatives that not only operate to benefit the children of the members of our organization but the children of the very communities where we reside.
