The South Suburban Chicago (IL) Chapter proudly celebrates more 40 Years of Service. This chapter humbly serves as the Home Chapter of our 14th National President, Gwendolyn B. Lee. Since the founding on June 6, 1976, South Suburban Chicago tirelessly makes a sustaining difference in the lives we touch. As one of the eight chapters in the Chicago Area Cluster, our more than 50 members serve the Chicago Southland Community through Five Program Facets:
The Facets symbolize the blueprint used to influence the South Suburban Community. In the process, the membership displays exemplary work ethics, commitment to the community, and chapter while building Friendships. The chapter motto, Building a Healthy Community: Programs with Purpose and Impact drives our service programs.
