We are a Public Service organization focusing on programs & projects geared towards the African- American community that fall under our five-point programmatic thrust:

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

The Cerritos Area Alumnae Chapter was proudly chartered on May 1, 1999 by 21 sorors dedicated to bringing the sorority’s mission into the community. The communities we serve consist of 9 cities: Artesia, Bellflower, Cerritos, Downey, Hawaiian Gardens, La Mirada, Norwalk, Santa Fe Springs and Whittier. Although our chapter started with 21 sorors, after 20 years in THIS community, we have grown to over 80 members and continue to grow each year. We strive to create innovative, creative and effective programs which incorporate the 5 programmatic thrusts listed above.

Some of our most successful programs are;

  • Our youth programs – Delta Academy, Delta GEMS and EMBODI which focus on mentorship and education for youths aged 11 through 18.
  • Raising and providing over $100,000 in Scholarship monies given to graduating high school seniors and book scholarships for continuing college students.
  • Our Social Action events which include Voter Education, Voter Registration and participation in the City of Cerritos’ Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration.
  • International Awareness Program – 20 Years of raising funds and donating to the Eternal Word Ministries, a Christian school in the Iwo state of Nigeria.
  • Other programs – Shoe giveaways, School supply giveaways, Meals, Christmas gifts for underserved families, Economic Empowerment seminars, Breast Cancer and AIDS Health fairs & Walkathons… just to name a few!
