History

Gamma Omega 1983
Gamma Omega Chapter was chartered July 23, 1983 in San Bernardino, CA.  The sponsor was Rosa Kelly; also in attendance at that meeting were the Western Regional Director Louretha Davis and Eta Phi Beta Sorority's National President Bettye Timmons.  There were originally seven charter members Rosa Kelly, Mae Brown, Mary Hampton, Annabelle Williams, Ernestine Branch, Norma Bullock, and Alfreda Elaine Scott. Participating in the Induction Ceremony were members from Kappa Chapter, Los Angeles, CA; Alpha PSI Chapter, Carson, CA; and Gamma Alpha Chapter, Lake Elsinore, CA.  The first meeting was held in San Bernardino, CA at the home of Rosa Kelly, Gamma Omega Chapter’s first President.    
 
The small group of women who organized Gamma Omega Chapter was conscious and privileged that the Sorority’s objectives centered on issues that significantly dealt with Families, Communities, Government and helping to alleviate problems concerning Citizens with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.  
 
The members were resolute that their Sorority experience should be as meaningful and productive as possible.  As Gamma Omega Chapter grew, they kept in mind two significant details: the importance of each individual and the strength of the organization. 
 
Ours is a legacy of service that deepens, rather than ends; as the world becomes more complex Gamma Omega holds fast to the principles initiated and developed by its earliest members; and to our motto, "Not For Ourselves, But For Others".
