Destiny!  Action!  Change!

The Time is Now...

Greetings Sorors and Friends! The Detroit Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., home of more than 769 members, is pleased to welcome you to our official website. Chartered more than 76 years ago, the Detroit Deltas are very excited about the work we do in the metropolitan Detroit community to carry out the vision of the 22 illustrious Founders of our sisterhood.

We have had the privilege of a supportive community; therefore, it is our Destiny to serve.

We have benefitted from the powerful and progressive actions of those who came before us, so Action is our heritage.

We are members of a community that is addressing the challenges that confront it, and we will not rest until there is Change, improvement, and inclusion.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., is the largest African-American women's organization. It was founded by 22 college women in 1913 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. Today, the sorority has a membership of more than 200,000 women, in the United States and abroad, dedicated to public service through our Five-Point Program Thrust, which includes: 

  • Educational Development
  • Economic Development
  • Political Awareness and Involvement
  • International Awareness and Involvement
  • Physical and Mental Health 

The mission of the Detroit Alumnae Chapter is to be an agent of positive change and to make a difference in our community by providing outstanding programming and services throughout Detroit and surrounding communities.  

Detroit Deltas are dedicated to progress; we address the needs of individuals and families, and we are committed to the community as we continue the vision and legacy of Sisterhood, Scholarship and Service implemented more than 104 years ago.  

Destiny!  Action!  Change!  The time is now...

We invite you to partner with us on this journey to make even more significant contributions as we continue to serve the metropolitan Detroit community.


In Service and Sisterhood,
