Serving the DC Metropolitan Area

Target I

Educational Enrichment

Rho Mu Omega engages in the sorority's signature youth enrichment program, ASCEND. This program is designed to motivate, engage and assist high school students in reaching their maximum potential. ASCEND will focus on Achievement, Self-Awareness, Communication, Engagement, Networking and Developmental Skills. Students in the ASCEND Program will have an opportunity to receive academic enrichment and life skills traming to support their journey to college or vocational employment.

SUPPORTING OUR HBCU
As part of our sorority's national campaign, we support our Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Our THINK HBCU℠ program highlights their contribution to the sorority and society. Through education, engagement and advocacy, we will showcase HBCUs as a critical venue for moving students to and through college.

Target II

Health Promotion

Rho Mu Omega is dedicated to promoting health awareness in the areas of  Alzheimer's Disease, Stroke and Mental Illness. 
 
The Alzheimer's Disease and Caregiver Support Program
generates awareness and support for Alzheimer's programming and research. Alzheimer's disease is one of the fastest growing health challenges among African Americans.
 
Stroke and Heart Disease Awareness remains a focus area concentrating on a major stroke prevention awareness campaign with emphasis on hypertension management, diet and exercise.
 
Mental Health is also highlighted as our members bring attention to mental illness among diverse populations with low utilization of mental health services.

Target III

Family Strengthening

Our Family Strengthening Programs targets critical issues facing many families, including lack of food, shelter and financial means.

Community based Childhood Hunger Initiatives partners with local agencies, food banks and community pantries.
 
The Family Seasonal Wraps Program offers sorority sponsors a major initiative to collect and donate hats, gloves, socks, scarves, coats, sweaters and other seasonal wraps for families in need.
 
Fiscal Responsibility Programs allows members to work with partner organizations and families to help increase their understanding of budgeting, basic financial planning and benefits of home ownership.
 

Target IV

Environmental Ownership

We implement high impact programs to provide healthy environments and improve the quality of life in underserved communities.
The AKA1908 Playground Project℠ ensures children have safe and inviting places to play. Sorority members will restore and renew 1,908 existing community and school playgrounds with its Restore, Refresh and Renew Project℠.

Through Acts of Green Project members promote environmental sustainability by encouraging recycling, litter prevention and waste management through daily green efforts in local communities.

Target V

Global Impact

We will implement the UNA-USA Global Classrooms Project to prepare today's youth for an increasingly global and complex society and to expand understanding of the UN, its mission and focus.
