3 Delta Manor IMG 5611Delta Manor is a seven-story high-rise apartment building in Detroit, Michigan. Comprised of 100 one-bedroom units, it is owned and operated by Delta Manor Incorporated, a Michigan non-profit housing corporation. The complex was dedicated in December 1988.

Conceived of and brought to life by the Property Task Force of the Detroit Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, which was formed in September 1983, Delta Manor’s purpose is to serve the housing needs of senior citizens. Delta Manor was also one of the first development projects of its kind in the United States to be initiated by a Greek-letter organization. Project leaders included Velma Walker, Cheryl Richardson McCall, Georgia Brown, Helen Garvin, and Leslie Gillespie, who also served as officers of the first Delta Manor board of directors.

The five million dollar project received grant funding from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), along with donations from sorority members and other supporters and significant assistance from the City of Detroit Community and Economic Development Department, which made the parcel of land available for development and provided other technical support.

Since opening to residents in 1989, both senior citizens and persons with disabilities have called Delta Manor home. Several of the current residents have lived at Delta Manor since its opening.

A top-to-bottom renovation project was completed at Delta Manor in 2008, at an approximate cost of $685,000. In addition to replacing an elevator and the generator, each of the units was painted and received a kitchen makeover, complete with new cupboards and counters, as well as new carpet and tile. Appliances were replaced as needed and new fixtures installed in bathrooms. Common areas were also refurbished.

In 2012 renovations began in our Computer Lab and Library. The reconfigured space provided for additional computers and a printer so that more of the residents could attend computer training classes.

In 2017, the building was refinanced under HUD Interest Rate Reduction (IRR) Program lowering the interest rate to 3.5% and the increase of additional funds for the Replacement Reserve Account, which aids in the upkeep and maintenance of the building.

In 2018, through the efforts of several Board members and the property manager working with Habitat for Humanity and Lowes Department Store, the property secured new refrigerators for all units in the building.

In December 2018, HUD renewed and approved the property contract with Delta Manor for another 15 years. Over the next 10 years, the property will undergo additional improvements based on the Property Capital Needs Assessment (PCNA) that was conducted in 2018.

Delta Manor is a separate and independent entity from Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and is currently governed by a 23-member board of directors. Each director brings diverse skills and abilities to the tasks of settings strategic direction for the complex and monitoring day-to-day operations. Over the course of the past 31 years, the board has been lead by the following:
