Renee Smith, Esq.


Welcome to our website which represents the members of the Delaware Valley (PA) Chapter and the many programs and events that reflect our chapter’s dedication to service and friendship. By viewing our website, I hope that you get to know our chapter members better, how we reflect our organization’s values and how we contribute to our local and greater communities.

In 1946, Margaret Roselle Hawkins and Sarah Strickland Scott called together seven friends in hopes of forming a service-oriented organization that would promote civic, educational and cultural concerns of the communities it served. We are a chapter full of dynamic Black women with professional roles in the fields of education, medicine, psychology, and law as well as holding many civic responsibilities. As reflected by the values of The Links, Incorporated, our chapter embodies service to others in all of our programming. Take a moment to view our programs page to see how our chapter executes the Links mission of service through programming that focuses on national and international trends, the arts, physical and emotional health, youth and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s).

The Delaware Valley (PA) Chapter strives to continue to exemplify the tenets of service and friendship through our programs and events. Please continue to visit our website to see what programs we will offer next and how we maintain our commitment to impacting the world.
