Omega PSI PHI Fraternity, Lambda Gamma Chapter
Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. is the first international fraternal organization to be founded on the campus of a historically black college.
Omega Psi Phi was founded on November 17, 1911, at Howard University in Washington, D.C. The founders were three Howard University undergraduates, — Edgar Amos Love, Oscar James Cooper and Frank Coleman. Joining them was their faculty adviser, Dr. Ernest Everett Just.
From the initials of the Greek phrase meaning, “friendship is essential to the soul,” the name Omega Psi Phi was derived. That phrase was selected as the motto.
Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance and Uplift were adopted as Cardinal Principles.

Open House Emergency Youth Shelter and Residential Services Licensed every two years through the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, Open House is a 24-hour access, 9-bed emergency shelter for troubled, runaway, homeless, abused, neglected and other displaced youth in the community. As of December 2010, Open House Youth Shelter was approved as a Residential Foster Care Facility through the state of NC. This provides some youth the opportunity to make their stay at Open House permanent until their 19th birthday. Youth ages 6 to 18 are eligible for services. Open House provides a positive peer community and encourages youth’s personal growth through skill building and counseling, providing for basic food, clothing and shelter needs, as well as long-term residential services. In addition to providing youth with basic food, clothing and shelter necessities, to ensure they are safe and not resorting to unsafe/unlawful independent living skills, Open House provides confidential clinical services for each individual youth and their families, while they are in shelter care, and for a period of three months after discharge, to maximize the success of the family reunification plan.
