Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated is an organization of college-educated women committed to the constructive development of its members and to public service with a primary focus on the Black community. The major programs of the Sorority are based upon the organization’s Five Point Programmatic Thrust. For more information, visit our national website at www.deltasigmatheta.org.
National economic trends, such as unstable employment, the threat to Social Security as we know it, and the widening gap between wealth and poverty are the basis for the development of Financial Fortitude, the current Economic Development program initiative of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. FCAC has designed programming to "Create a Strong Financial Foundation." Click HERE to view FCAC's past Fortitude Fridays sessions.
International Awareness & Involvement
FCAC annually supports and donates to Mary Help of the Sick Mission Hospital (Thika, Kenya), Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc, Elementary School, Cynthia M.A. Butler-McIntyre Campus (Cherette, Haiti), Delta House, Swaziland, HURU International, and World AIDS Day on Dec. 1st. Locally, we collect eyeglasses with the Lions Club Eyeglass Recycling Center of Northern Virginia (LERC), and visit educational hubs, such as the Embassy of the Republic of Kenya.
Physical and Mental Health
As an organization of predominantly African American women, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is uniquely positioned to impact not only the well-being of its membership, but also the families and communities we serve. FCAC creates programming such as NICU book drives, Black women and infertility webinars, and social media messaging like Wellness Wednesdays that bring awareness and solutions to the community at large.
Political Awareness and Involvement
THE FCAC COMMUNITY PLEDGE: WE THE PEOPLE . . . Believe that through our collective work, everyone will exercise their legal right to vote and full power to make a difference in this community. We will empower those who do not feel they have a voice, inspire those who choose to stand as community leaders, and unify urgently to act for positive community change. We will openly analyze the history of our community; identify issues that negatively affect our collective interest and progress, and align ourselves with individuals and groups who share our interests and beliefs. We are committed to acting in a way that perfects our community.
We commit to unite and stand with all embracing America, the beautiful.
The FCAC Son-Shine Program is designed to provide mothers within our service area access to a broad range of resources and tools to assist with parenting young males.
