African-American women are accustomed to being statistical leaders in our society. We are some of the highest achievers in education, civic involvement, and the workforce. Unfortunately, we also are the statistical leaders in some of the deadliest health epidemics. The Physical and Mental Health subcommittee has developed a health initiative called DeltaCare which is a holistic approach to wellness in our sisterhood.
DeltaCare is a call to action for all members of the sorority to practice the ethic of self-care through three components:
- Physical wellness
- Emotional wellness
- Awareness and Advocacy
Women Helping Women, Families and Children (WHWFC) is dedicated to empowering women and children to create healthy families and vibrant communities. We provide an array of vital support to families through food donations, school supply donations and support to children emancipating from the foster care system. We are committed to making a difference for the families and children in our service area who are in need.
