The Links, Incorporated is an international, not-for-profit corporation, established in 1946. The membership consists of nearly 15,000 professional women of color in 285 chapters located in 41 states, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. It is one of the nation’s oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of extraordinary women who are committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry.
Our Core Values are Friendship, Integrity, Honesty, Service, Commitment, Family Relationships, Courage, Respect for Self and Others, Legacy, Confidentiality, Responsibility, and Accountability.
From such bold and imaginative programs as Girl Stars! and our Spring 2016 Links Fit by 50 Health & Wellness Challenge, to our work with unbelievably supportive corporate and non-profit partners who walk hand-in-hand with us, we honor our founding members and those who have paved the way for our success. We take immense pride in knowing that our progressive approach to service is making a significant difference not only in the Greater Detroit area, but in the state of Michigan, the nation, and internationally due in part to our work in Haiti.
In the spirit of Excellence, Elegance and Ethics, I welcome you to our Website. I invite you to learn about the many programs we develop and the elegant events that give us the opportunity to thank those who support our work and allow us to deepen our friendships and partnerships. You will also see photos of chapter members in action—sharing a laugh, standing proudly as we represent our chapter on a national stage and embracing the countless people we serve each and every day.
Yours in friendship and service,
