In June of 1951, by vote at the Jack and Jill National Convention, Winston-Salem became the 37th Jack and Jill Chapter. The chapter began with five Charter members: Louise Davis, Mary Hauser, Elaine Malloy, Melanie Walker and Nell Wright. The Winston-Salem Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc., is a non-profit family organization with mothers holding membership.
The mission of the Winston-Salem Chapter is to participate in cultural, educational, social, and spiritual programming that will strengthen the family unit; to be involved in community outreach; and to increase participation on a regional and national level. Our vision is to strive toward attaining personal and family growth through meaningful experiences and relationships for our children and our community.
During our history, we have accomplished much for our children, children in the community and the community as a whole. We are proud of the success of the We Invest Now for Tomorrow (WIN) program. WIN was funded by a grant from the Jack and Jill of America Foundation. It was designed to empower African-American youth in our community through hands-on lessons in basic financial management and wealth building principles. The program was conducted by one of our own chapter fathers, Danny Freeman. In addition, the Winston-Salem Chapter has hosted a regional cluster, a successful regional children's cluster, and the 58th Annual Mid Atlantic Regional Teen Conference, which was a resounding success with over 400 participants in attendance in Winston-Salem.
The Winston-Salem Chapter is distinguished as a Five Star chapter. We are committed to providing the best environment for our members and families. Our programming is outstanding along with drive to teach our children to be exceptional members of society.
