It is my distinct pleasure, as the 12th President of the “Phenomenal” Phi Kappa Omega Chapter, to welcome you to our official website. Here you will learn more about our genuine sisterhood and the phenomenal service that we provide in the greater Chicagoland area with a focus on the Evergreen Park Community.

As we embrace our new normal, life in a more virtual environment, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated ®, Phi Kappa Omega Chapter continues to be dedicated to implementing programs of service to enhance the social, economic, health and educational well-being of our communities. Thanks to community partnerships with recognized organizations including the Evergreen Park Library, Northwestern Mutual, the American Medical Association and Chicago State University, we continue to expand our footprint and increase the impact in the communities that we serve.

Our community partnerships have resulted in our ability to participate in the growth and sustainability of several black owned businesses, raise thousands of dollars toward the fight against breast cancer, and award over $25,000.00 in academic scholarships to deserving high school and college students. We have also collected and donated hundreds of food baskets, coats, eyeglasses and shoes, children’s reading books and a variety of other items to support local shelters, food pantries and schools.

Since January 8, 2000, Phi Kappa Omega Chapter, the first chapter chartered in the new millennium, has worked tirelessly to uphold the commitment to be of “Service to All Mankind”. Under the leadership of the 2022-2023 executive team, we will continue in that tradition by serving our communities with Grace, Impact and Excellence! Now more than ever the need is great and the time is now, so we will continue to answer the call.

Enjoy exploring our website!
