Economic Development is the creation of wealth from which community benefits are realized. It is an investment in growing your economy and enhancing the prosperity and quality of life for all residents. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is “breaking new ground” in response to the economic climate of the nation.
National economic trends, such as unstable employment, the threat to Social Security as we know it, and the widening gap between wealth and poverty are the basis for the development of Financial Fortitude, the current Economic Development program initiative of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. Financial Fortitude is a process that will help program participants to set and define goals, develop a plan to achieve them, and to put the plan into action. The process serves as a blueprint to address all aspects of personal finances.
In addition to Financial Fortitude, Western Wake Alumnae Chapter has implemented other beneficial programs such as home buying seminars and various small business owner seminars.
