Houston Alumnae Chapter began with the vision of seven service-oriented women of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, and made history by becoming the first Black Greek-letter organization to organize a chapter in Houston, Texas. Houston Alumnae, under the leadership of Christine Criner-Smith, is proud to share its rich history of nearly 89 years of local and global public service experiences.
As a collective body of college-educated women, Houston Alumnae strives diligently to offer the Greater Houston Area a full scope of high-impact programs, services, and partnerships aligned with the Sorority’s Five-Point Programmatic Thrust.
With a membership of 567 women, Houston Alumnae welcomes the opportunity to partner with other organizations and community leaders that share the same goals and ideals. Additionally, reciprocal support of Houston Alumnae’s efforts is welcomed.
