Thank you for visiting the website of The Philadelphia Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated. As the founding chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc., we are full of rich history and tradition. Seventy-eight years strong, Jack and Jill of America, Inc., is the premier African-American family organization. We are dedicated to building and cultivating future leaders through community service and legislative activism.
As I reflect on the founding of Jack and Jill of America, Inc., I am inspired by the desire of our founding mother, Marion Stubbs Thomas. She was driven by the desire to guarantee that our children have opportunities for a “graceful approach to a beautiful adulthood” through the programs offered in Jack and Jill. We stand on the shoulders of our beloved founders and follow in the path they laid through our chapter theme: Reignite the Flame and Continue the Legacy.
We the lovely mothers of the city of Brotherly Love and Sisterly affection are committed to making an impact on the lives of children and our community. Together, We have the Power to Make a Difference.
Long Live Jack and Jill,
