Greetings Sorors and Friends!

Welcome to the official website for New York Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit our site, and hope that you become better acquainted with our chapter and the great service that we provide to our community.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was founded in 1913 on the campus of Howard University by twenty-two courageous women who aspired to dedicate themselves to sisterhood, scholarship and service.
