The Links Inc. was founded in November 1946 in Philadelphia in the wake of World War II by Margaret Rosselle Hawkins and Sarah Scott Strickland. They envisioned a service-oriented organization that would have the twofold purpose of promoting civic, educational and cultural concerns and lead black women into post-war America. The organization has a membership of 14,000 women and 282 chapters in 41 states, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of the Bahamas.

The Youngstown chapter was organized and chartered in 1955 by Anita Brown, Margaret Smith and Grace Hill Walker, who served as its first president.

Its resources are used to improve the quality of life through service to others in the community.
