President's Message

Greetings from the sensational South Belt Houston Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated. It is an honor to welcome you on behalf of our wonderful chapter.

The South Belt Houston Chapter was chartered in 1992 by 24 dynamic women who had a desire to continue the rich legacy of Jack and Jill with their children. Because of the diligence of these mothers, our chapter is now 160+ women strong, including 105 active members and 58 associates.

I am honored to serve these amazing women and their children as South Belt Houston’s 12th chapter president. South Belt Houston is filled with vivacious women who are leading in their professions and their communities while balancing the joys of motherhood.Through the bonds that we create in our chapter, we learn, grow and enrich our families to nurture the next generation of bright, promising African-American leaders. 

Our chapter is focused on three primary areas that speak to the needs and desires of our members: children’s programming, family programming and civic service. It is through these three areas that we can be most impactful and relevant in the lives of our children and youth, and it is how we are continuing the legacy of the pioneering women who founded our organization in 1938.

I really am so thrilled to be a small part of Jack and Jill’s long, illustrious history, and I’m even more excited that you have stopped by to learn a bit more about us. I hope you enjoy your glimpse into our chapter and our esteemed organization.

D'Andrea L. Virgil

12th Chapter President
