Contra Costa Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

The Contra Costa Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. partnered with STAND!’s Kinship program, which provides respite and services to relative caregivers so that children can remain with their family and avoid foster care placement. Linda Bertrand, Chair of the chapter’s Economic Development Committee, said that the group believes in increasing financial awareness:

When people understand their finances and the resources available to them, they can live a better life.
— Linda Betrand, STAND! volunteer

The Contra Costa Alumnae Chapter collaborated with Wells Fargo to organize a series of financial wellness workshops for Kinship caregivers. The first session on credit educated the group on how credit works and what they can do to fix their credit. Caregivers found the workshop extremely helpful and are looking forward to the next workshop on how to purchase a home. Thanks to the Contra Costa Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta for building a strong foundation for our families!
