From Our President
My name is Jackie Smith and on behalf of the Suburban Houston-Fort Bend Alumnae Chapter (SHFBAC) of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, it is my pleasure to serve as the 2020-2024 Chapter President!
Charted on May 22, 1976, twelve dynamic, visionary women felt a desire to serve what they called a “forgotten community”. This community was predominately Black and mostly rural; therefore, they established a chapter to serve the Missouri City and Fort Bend County area. Over the past 46 years, the members of SHFBAC have focused on the Five-Point Programmatic Thrust of the Sorority:
We enjoy raising scholarship funding that impacts the students in our local elementary and secondary schools in our service area along with partnering with Fort Bend Women’s Center, The Boys & Girls Club of Houston and Fort Bend, Mayors and City Councils in Missouri City, Richmond, and Rosenberg as well the DePelchin Children’s Center.
We are active in the community donating food, clothing, and basic personal items. We are passionate about empowering our citizens on the importance of voting and partner with local organizations to register voters. We work with local schools teaching students the importance of financial wealth, financial planning, entrepreneurship as well as writing and visual arts.
Our service reaches global initiatives such as Haiti relief and AIDS awareness. We are active in raising funds for our strategic partners i.e. St. Jude Children’s Research, Sisters Network, and March of Dimes.
As a sisterhood founded on Christian principles, we abide by the theme “Sisterhood and Service Matters!” We are a warm, caring, and compassionate group of women. It is our greatest joy to provide public service. If you are a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. looking for a welcoming chapter, I invite you to attend a chapter meeting. If you are a citizen or organization in the Missouri City and Fort Bend County area and would like to partner with us, please send us a message via the Contact Us page!
With Joy in my Heart!
Jackie Smith, President
