As an organization of predominantly African-American women, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is uniquely positioned to impact not only the well-being of its members but also the families and communities we serve. The DeltaCare initiative is an internal wellness initiative under
the programmatic thrust of Physical and Mental Health. It was created to promote self-care through physical wellness, emotional wellness, and awareness/advocacy. Specifically, the Red S.H.O.E. challenge is the physical health component of DeltaCare that encourages members to engage in healthy behaviors. S.H.O.E. is an acronym for Self-care, Healthy Options, and Exercise.
The Physical and Mental Health Committee brings awareness to the community about different health-related issues:
Mind, Body Yoga
TCMDAC emphasizes the importance of stable physical and mental health in conjunction with the spiritual, psychological, and social aspects of self-care.

These actions include the dissemination of useful information related to the prevention of domestic violence, and the collection and distribution of necessary items for the elderly, families, and children.
TCMDAC partners with identified charitable partners to offer an opportunity for fitness and the dissemination of beneficial health information to participants and the community at large.
