Deloris was affectionately known in the community as “Momma C” and “Ms. Curtis”. Deloris has been a longtime advocate for children and people in the "CD" community. Deloris was well known for her love and compassion for people who struggled and needed a place to lay their head, a hot meal and in some instances, providing that personal touch to make sure they we're able to make it through the day.
