Delta is the chapter that revolutionized Kappa Psi Kappa Fraternity Incorporated forever! The men of the Delta Chapter were established on October 24, 2002. These brothers were bound for K-Psi greatness, as they were part of Kappa Psi Kappa history well before their first line had crossed! The founding line of the Delta Chapter became the very first line in the Midwest Region. Constantly breaking boundaries within life and within Kappa Psi Kappa, the Delta Chapter proved themselves and was the FIRST fully established and chartered chapter in Kappa Psi Kappa; second to the Alpha Chapter, after the induction of the Spring 2003 Intake Class.
Continuing to maintain its reputation of innovative firsts, the Delta Chapter upholds the scared values of service, building community, leadership development, continues to grow to better the future, works to uplift the community, and strive for its goals of service. Below are some of the major service initiative staples of the Delta Chapter:
Rocks Coordinating Committee – The planning group behind Montrose Rocks, formed in 1996 to begin an annual celebration of pride for Chicago’s Black gay and lesbian communities.
Windy City Black Pride – Created for and by African-American LGBT Men and Women in the Chicago, who provide programming to the African-American LGBT community around the Chicago-land area.
Salvation Army: Harbor Light of Chicago – One of largest residential recovery programs in Chicago; which offers an array of services to the community through spiritual, transitional jobs, and homeless outreach programs.
