Welcome! 

Thank you for visiting the Alameda Contra Costa (CA) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated! Please take a few moments to look around.  Our Chapter is committed to providing programs and services that positively impact the lives of underserved members of our community.  We volunteer over 5,500 community service hours each year and form strategic partnerships to enable us to support the communities we serve. We are women “linked” in friendship and service, the tenets and foundation of The Links, Incorporated. Please visit our website often to learn more about our continued services to the Alameda and Contra Costa community.

Warmest regards,

Deirdre Haizlip Celotto

The Links, Incorporated , founded in 1946, is a national non-profit women’s service organization of approximately 10,000 African-American women in the United States, Germany, the Bahamas and South Africa. The Links, Incorporated is one of the oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of women who are committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry. 

Closer to home, there are several local Links chapters in the Bay Area – Oakland, San Francisco, Peninsula, San Jose, South Bay and Alameda Contra Costa. The Alameda Contra Costa Chapter of the Links (ACCL) is comprised of African-American women residing in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. Founded nearly 30 years ago, ACCL supports local service agencies serving primarily low-income, inner-city youth and their families through volunteer and fundraising efforts. ACCL member, Glenda Newell-Harris, currently serves as National President.
