President's Message

Greetings Charm Sisters, Friends, and Visitors! 

It is with sincere enthusiasm that I welcome you to the virtual home of CHARMS, INCORPORATED. “You’ve come a long way baby!”

When a small group of women in Pittsburgh, PA, gathered in the evening and called themselves “Midnighters’'” in 1952 the initial purpose of the group was to create a social outlet.  As they soon realized that they could also impact the welfare of the community, civic responsibility became a part of their focus. The club women, selected a new name, (Squaws Inc.), became charted in 1962 and thus the good deeds and good times together with families and friends began. Here we are, in the 21st century with a “Virtual Home”….If only our founders could see us now!

We have grown to 21 Chapters across the United States, striving to carry out the mission and purpose of those pioneering, dynamic women. Women who wanted more for their communities and to also keep our cultural social graces alive. Our name has evolved through our fifty years of existence, but our mission and focus remain the same.

Explore our website and our chapter links to learn more about Charms, Inc. and the great work that we share as we support our various communities. Come join us at one of our events in your area. Meet the spirited and committed women who make this organization great!
