Meet our Chapter
The story of the Links, Incorporated speaks for itself. In the telling, there emerges the record of organizational experiences which are both spectacular and significant.
From its beginning, The Links has had a specialized approach to membership—personalized, controlled, evaluated and documented.
The Indianapolis chapter of Links was chartered on March 17, 1951 sponsored by Dayton and Cincinnati chapters; organized by Bess Simpson; fourteen charter members were installed by Letitia Rose, National Vice-President; Hortense Poindexter, Ruth Lewis and Ruth Jackson. This chartering increased the Central Area chapters to 13 and National chapters to forty-three.
The Links, Incorporated has made its name synonymous with effective programing. Each element of the three fold purpose of the Links—educational, civic and intercultural may be equated with one or more of the facets—Service to Youth, National Trends and Services, International Trends and Services, the Arts and Health and Human Services.
The purpose and true reason for the Links, Incorporated is to be of service to humanity.
Please support our programs as we continue to make an impact on our community!
