Since its founding in 1913, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. has clearly distinguished itself as a public service organization that boldly confronts the challenges of African Americans and, hence, all Americans. Over the years, a wide range of programs addressing education, health, international development, and strengthening of the African American family have evolved. In realizing its mission, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. provides an extensive array of public service initiatives through its Five-Point Program Thrust:
The West Palm Beach Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is committed to encouraging and empowering the African American community to become financially literate and achieve economic sustainability. We do this through the development and implementation of programs that address the Financial Planning and Consumer Literacy needs of our community and by partnering with community agencies.
We impact the lives of students throughout our service area by creatively planning and implementing programs and projects that encourage and stimulate their academic and social development. Our chapter actively involves them in service learning and community service opportunities.
International Awareness and Involvement
West Palm Beach Alumnae strives to create awareness and promote active participation in addressing issues, affecting women and children around the world. Nationally, the sorority’s main International programs are the Mary Help of the Sick Mission Hospital as well as the Summit IV.
Physical and Mental Health
Concerns about America’s physical and mental health have not escaped Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. Delta’s work in prevention and “wellness” translates to health education programs, health fairs and provision of health care services. Delta also supports medical research that examines illnesses that victimize specific segments of the country’s population.
Political Awareness and Involvement
The West Palm Beach Alumnae Chapter is committed to being proactive in informing and educating our membership and community about the political issues that have the potential to impact their lives. Our chapter members participate in the Grand Chapter initiatives of Delta Days at the Nation’s Capital and Delta Days at the State Capital in order to become more informed of new legislation affecting the community.
