The Eta Epsilon Omega Chapter was chartered on December 13, 1958, in Tucson, Arizona. The charter members were Dr. Laura Banks, Dr. Tina Coleman-Puckett, Mrs. Etta Dawson, Mrs. Constance Smith, Mrs. Elgie Batteau, Mrs. Patricia Scott, Dr. Anna Jolivet, Mrs. Irene George, Mrs. June Berry, Dr. Vivian Cox, Mrs. Canis Patterson, Mrs. Julia Taylor, Mrs. May Taylor and Mrs. Dorothy McIver.
For 58 years, the chapter has remained committed and engaged in the Tucson community; as we continue to operate under the 2014-2018 Program theme: “Launching New Dimensions of Service,” we have the opportunity to address community needs with programs in traditional and new target areas. The program features five target areas, one signature program, and community service days. The five target areas are:
- Educational Enrichment
- Health Promotion
- Family Strengthening
- Environmental Ownership
- Global Impact
Eta Epsilon Omega members are giving back locally at these various community impact days: MLK Day of Service (January), Pink Goes Red for a Day (February), 1908 Playground Mobilization Day (May), and The Longest Day Alzheimer’s Support Activities (June). Our new ASCEND Program is our youth enrichment program designed for high school students.
