Dear Link Sisters and Friends,
Welcome to the Website of the Petersburg Chapter, The Links, Incorporated!
As one of the more than 270 chapters of The Links, Incorporated, we join the more than 12,000 professional women of color located in 41 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of the Bahamas in a stellar commitment to enriching the cultural and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry.
The Petersburg Chapter is actively engaged in the implementation of the organization’s National Theme, “Building a Healthy Legacy: Our Prescription for the Future.” Now under the leadership of National President, Glenda Newell Harris, we find ourselves seeking new ways to partner with others to address the health needs of our community - mentally, physically and spiritually. Currently, our Chapter sponsors programs in each of the Five Program Facets: Services to Youth, National Trends and Services, The Arts, International Trends and Services and Health and Human Services. Each program not only addresses matters of well being, but impacts the quality of life for those we serve.
None of what we do would be possible without the support from those in our community. To those who have provided financial resources, offered places to hold meetings and activities, served as facilitators for various programs and in countless ways over the past 66 years enabled the Petersburg Chapter to not only survive, but to thrive, we say thank you. Our success is your success. We trust that you will continue to partner with us. Let us vow that neither of us will settle for what’s good for our community, when the capacity exists for us to work together to do great things for all of the citizens of the Greater Petersburg Community!
