Alpha Xi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated was established in Dallas, Texas on June 6, 1929. Mrs. Florence Harlee Phelps, a Howard University graduate, initiated the effort to establish in her hometown a chapter of the first Greek letter sorority for African American women. 

Florence Phelps was elected as the first president of the chapter. Although small in number, they began working immediately to fulfill the purpose of the organization. Through programs of service, they encouraged young women to develop high standards of character and excellence in educational achievement.

From its beginning, the chapter has continuously given college scholarships to Dallas students. Other programs have included: vocational counseling and guidance for high school students; health and other social service initiatives for women and children; support of the African American family; and support to developing art, cultural and educational institutions and groups.

As Alpha Xi Omega Chapter celebrates 86 years, it is poised and ready to deliver even greater service to needy Dallas residents. This large group of exceptionally talented, college-educated African American women is committed to serving humankind and improving the quality of life for all.
