Denton County Alumnae Chapter
Chartered March 25, 1995
Exercising extraordinary vision to establish and promote programs that include support, scholarship, and service to the greater Denton County area communities, fourteen women led the charge for the charter of Denton County Alumnae Chapter.
- E.M.B.O.D.I. - Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence
- Mission Ghana - International Awareness and Involvement Initiative
- Delta Home Ownership Challenge - Economic Development initiative
- Sugar Free Fridays - A Physical and Mental Health initiative
The only African American alumnae sorority in Denton county to service all cities in the greater Denton county area, DCAC has blazed the southwest trails by becoming well known for our three signature event programs:
- The Women’s Symposium - Program designed to Empower Women
- Annual HBCU's Information Session - Promotes awareness of Historically Black Colleges and Universities and their academic programs
- Annual Town Hall Meeting - Meeting that focuses on social action and economic development initiatives.
Additionally, and to our credit, DCAC has been instrumental in the development of programs and partnerships throughout the greater Denton County area.
We have built strong, continuous, and unyielding relationships which include but is not limited to the Denton Police Department, as a member of their United Community Action Network (UCAN) Program, Texas Woman’s University, a recognized sponsor of our Women’s Symposium and Delta GEMS program, Little Elm Independent School District partnership for Voter Registration Drives during football season, Frisco Independent School District partnership as host district for our annual Historically Black Colleges and Universities Information Session, Denton City Council for facilitation assistance with our Town Hall Meetings, Fred Moore Day Care Center Toy Drive, Tomas Rivera Elementary Mentoring Program, and Habitat for Humanity.
It is Our Responsibility and It Is Our Legacy!
