I am honored and humbled to serve as the Greater Cleveland Delta Foundation Life Development Center (GCDFLDC) President for 2022-2024. The Greater Cleveland Delta Foundation Life Development Center Inc., is a 501(c)(3) organization established in 1997 for the purpose of providing a permanent home for the Greater Cleveland Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Our mission is to promote educational, health, government, economics, social and cultural programs for the community. Our theme for 2022-2024 is Working for Today to Change Tomorrow and our focus is Community, Collaboration and Commitment.

During the 2021 board year, The GCDFLDC set an important goal to pay off the Delta Center’s mortgage located at 11955 Shaker Boulevard. With the generous support of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., donors, friends and supporters we achieved our goal.  We extend a heartfelt thank you to all that supported the GCDFLDC efforts.  During the 2021 board year, the GCDFLDC collaborated with the Cleveland Food Bank to feed 373 families, partnered with local experts to present educational and health seminars, sponsored a community virtual walk and  mentored CMSD students in our Stephanie Tubbs Jones Leadership Academy. The GCDFLDC is committed to continue the rich legacy of serving and uplifting our Cleveland area community. 

Our vision for GCDFLDC is a future where we continue to grow and support important service-oriented causes that are crucial to our community, develop and create lasting partnerships . Thanks to the accomplishments and remarkable work of our Board of Directors, Advisory Board Members, Friends of GCDFLDC, and volunteers, we have begun a movement for transformative change in our community that the GCDFLDC is committed to help nurture and grow.
