Sanford Alumnae Chapter
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated
Programs
Since its founding in 1913 Delta Sigma Theta 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 provides an extensive array of public service initiatives through its Five-Point Program Thrust of Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement.

Delta’s mission for its 5-Point Programmatic Thrust is:
To provide ongoing programming support and technical assistance to chapters of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority;
  • To identify new areas of programming with national and international implications for the Delta membership and the communities served; and
  • To review national and local chapter reports, statistical data and assessments of the Five-Point Programmatic Thrusts.
