About the Chapter

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was founded by 22 college women in 1913 on the campus of Howard University. Today, the Sorority has over 250,000 members in the United States and abroad, dedicated to public service.

The Schaumburg-Hoffman Estate Alumnae Chapter was chartered on March 2, 1991, officially becoming a part of the Mighty Midwest Region. The Chapter currently has over 85 active members. Since 1991, members have used their talents, time, and resources to undertake efforts to: promote financial empowerment; increase physical and mental health awareness; conduct voter registration drives; provide voter education; conduct youth enrichment programs and award scholarships to high school seniors; and much more.

 

The members of the Chapter have a strong commitment to public service and have developed innovative Chapter programs, and as a result, the Chapter has been recognized on local, Regional, and National levels.
