A Message from the President

Welcome to the New Haven Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc.,

static1.squarespace.jpg

We are a committed group of mothers who provide dynamic programming for our children and for other children in the Greater New Haven area.  Our programming is designed to support the positive development of children as we build our future leaders.  Our members are busy mothers who seek the company of other devoted moms.  Together we offer programming that teaches our children leadership skills, promotes cultural awareness, provides educational enrichment in the areas of science, technology, arts and math, and provides positive, age-appropriate social activities.  Our membership of over 40 moms seeks to meet the programming needs of children ages 2 to 19. 

Annually we raise funds to support the Jack and Jill Foundation and to support local charitable organizations serving the Greater New Haven area.  We seek partnerships with other organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club of New Haven, New Haven Reads, New Reach, Inc. and Christian Community Action, Inc. to impact our communities and further our reach.   

Explore our website further to see how we embrace our motto: "Let's work, let's play, let's live together!" 

Sincerely,
Karen DuBois-Walton | Chapter President
