About Us

 Going Forward in the New Millennium

Omega Psi Phi Fraternity is the first intercollegiate fraternity established by African Americans (November 17, 1911) at a historically black college or university, Howard University in Washington, D.C.  Our Cardinal Principles are Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance and Uplift. 

 

Kappa Upsilon Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity was chartered in West Palm Beach, Florida in November 1951.  Over several decades, our chapter has evolved into an effective service organization in South Florida.  

 

In 2002, the Foundation established as its mission: to provide support to vulnerable and undeserved residents of Palm Beach County; to support increased resources and progressive policies to assist youth at-risk and low-income residents; to develop strategic alliances with relevant organizations; and to identify key factors to increase the chance of positive outcomes.

The Foundation is a quality 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports and implements the progressive goals of the Fraternity, particularly its twin goals of empowering youth and uplifting community residents.
