Official Statement from The 40th Grand Basileus of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated
Omega Charities Develops the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund to Help Assist Those Impacted In Texas

Giving Honor to God and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

All men of Omega stand in prayer as we watch this devastating storm tear through the state of Texas. We pray for all that are in harm's way and ask you to please think safety first. Brothers please apply our cardinal principals to either persevere through the storm and uplift others that are in harm's way. Our prayers are for the Brothers and their families and all of God's children that may be impacted by this storm. The men of Omega have put a disaster assistance plan in place for all Omega men and their families as a priority, and for other citizens as well. The financial assistance will be tiered for nonfinancial members, financial members, and members who are opening their homes to others. Brother Dr. Kenneth Terrell, Ninth District Representative, is working with Brother Dan Jones and IHQ management, Brother Kenny Barnes and Brother John Howard and Al Rosier, Chairman of Omega Charities, on the distribution of the gift cards, nonperishables and other items to assist those in need.

On behalf of the Brothers impacted by Hurricane Harvey in Houston and surrounding areas, Omega Charities has established a Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. Tax-deductible donations of lifechanging support can be made via three websites that include the IHQ website @, Omega Charities @ and Omega Life Membership @ by clicking on the DONATE button to assist those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. We encourage everyone to support our efforts with tax-deductible check contributions payable to Omega Charities, Inc., and mailed to Omega Charities, Inc., 3951 Snapfinger Parkway, Suite 202, Decatur, GA 30035. Please note "Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund" in the memo section of your check. You will receive a receipt for your contribution and thank you for helping Omega Charities to help others.
