Welcome to The National Drifters, Incorporated Website!

Welcome to The National Drifters, Incorporated website! With over 600 membership volunteers in 38 chapters across the United States, we pledge to continue our legacy of giving and service in our respective communities.

In 1954, The National Drifters, Incorporated was formed in Waco, Texas to nurture warm friendships and provide a social outlet for women with similar backgrounds and interests. By 1956, the National Drifters had organized and established chapters in Detroit, Chicago, Louisville, Indianapolis, St. Louis, New York, and Kansas City.

As the organization continued to evolve, so did its mission which incorporates service to local communities where members reside. The 38 chapters provide scholarships to youth along with assistance to seniors as they promote the national theme, Strengthen our families to build better communities,” including a focus on voter education and registration.

Visiting our website will provide you with insights into what inspires us to impact the communities we serve and encourages us to move forward as we collaborate and build relationships with similar organizations like the Black Women’s Agenda.

With guidance and service to our communities, my plan as National President is to continue to energize and strengthen this illustrious organization of talented women to become the best version of ourselves where we build a legacy of strong leadership, outstanding service, and a robust sisterhood.

We request your feedback. We encourage you to come back often and visit the site again, and again, and again. If you are interested in learning more about us and contributing to our illustrious history of giving and service, please click the “Contact Us” tab and send us your information.

As National President, I invite you to join our dedicated membership to support our theme. You have taken the first step by visiting our website . . . why not take the next step and become part of our legacy!

Enjoy your visit!
