Economic Development

The mission of the Economic Development Committee is to help bridge the gap between wealth and poverty. The current initiative of Delta Sigma Theta is “Financial Fortitude.”

This is a process that helps to define financial goals, develop a plan to achieve those goals and put the plan into action. Columbia Alumnae partners with the Howard County Department of Housing for Affordable Housing; with St. John Baptist Church and Grass Roots for the Cold Weather Shelter; and with Success in Style to assist women and men in crisis, in the Baltimore-Washington Corridor to become self-sufficient.
