Welcome to the website of the Gary Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. known as the Love Chapter.  The Gary Alumnae Chapter was chartered in 1938 by 7 dedicated women determined to serve the needs of the community and we continue to have our footprint across the regional and national levels of our illustrious sorority.

For the past 82 years, the primary focus of Gary Alumnae has been to assist with the needs of the communities in which we serve through various programs, activities, and partnerships.  The programs that we provide align with our national initiatives derived around our Five Programmatic Thrust: Educational Development, Economic Development, International Awareness, and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement.  GAC has been hard at work registering citizens to vote, feeding those individuals that don’t have a meal, educating families on health concerns that plague the black community such as diabetes, hypertension, and offering safe programming activities for our youth as well as issuing scholarships to young women.

With a membership of over 150 women, we will continue to enrich the lives of those individuals within our communities through continued collaborations with local organizations and our D9 family, programming, workshops, and scholarships.

On behalf of the Gary Alumnae Chapter, I thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you will continue to stay connected and follow us via our Social Media platforms for upcoming events and programming.
