Five Point Programmatic Thrust
Since its founding in 1913 Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. has clearly distinguished itself as a public service organization that boldly confronts the challenges of African Americans and, hence, all Americans. Over the years, a wide range of programs addressing education, health, international development, and strengthening of the African American family have evolved. In realizing its mission, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. provides an extensive array of public service initiatives through its Five Point Programmatic Thrust of Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement.
African Americans have been economically disenfranchised due to racism and other social ills. The NCTA Economic Development Committee, with instruction from our national body, seeks to change the course of this grave tragedy. Our mission is to encourage and improve the economic well-being thus leading to a change in the quality of life for our community. This goal is accomplished through pairing individuals with knowledge, tools, and resources.

INTERNATIONAL AWARENESS & INVOLVEMENT
NCTA wants to encourage involvement in international affairs, especially affairs that affect people of the African Diaspora, as well as educate the community at-large on current and ongoing issues within the international arena.
PHYSICAL & MENTAL HEALTH
Studies have shown that African Americans suffer from a myriad of diseases at greater rates than any other population. The NCTA Health and Wellness Committee is dedicated to bringing awareness to this fact and teaching persons of color how to live in a manner that enhances overall wellbeing. Through fun and interactive events, the committee tackles difficult topics and teaches our community how to eat and live better. To this end, annually we host a Health Fair to accomplish this goal and honor trailblazers in the field of medicine.
POLITICAL AWARENESS & INVOLVEMENT
Social Justice and protecting the rights of human beings is at the very core of what Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was founded upon. Our National Social Action Commission strives earnestly to ensure that issues impacting our country and world are at the forefront of our consciousness. Locally, we earnestly seek to empower the residents of Tarrant County, through forging partnerships with community organizations.
