Jack and Jill of America, Inc.
Kansas City, Kansas Chapter
Jack and Jill of America was founded January 24, 1938 in Philadelphia, initiating from a meeting of 20 mothers with the idea of bringing together children in a nurturing and supportive social and cultural environment. We are a nonprofit family organization of mothers with children between the ages of 2 and 19. Today, there are more than 230 chapters nationwide, representing more than 40,000 family members. For 60 years, the KCKS Chapter has continued to support the mission of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. with programs that encourage civic engagement, leadership and volunteer service.
Our children's programming "creates a medium of contact for children that stimulates growth and development" This is accomplished by the following programmatic thrusts:
Health and Wellness
Let's Live Together
Our annual Jack and Jill Day is a day for all of our families to reconnect from the summer break. Our new program year begins in the month of September. We also pay special tribute to Carole Robertson, one of the four little girls that died in the Birmingham church bombing on September 15, 1963.
