Our Mission

It gives us great pleasure to offer greetings and a heartfelt welcome from Beta Phi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. located in Durham, North Carolina. Beta Phi Chapter has been instrumental in uplifting the Durham community since its charter in 1924. Beta Phi Chapter, known throughout the Sixth District, has a long, rich and storied history. More than a few of Durham's leaders in business, finance, politics, education, activism, religion, entrepreneurship, and youth programs have been members of our chapter, then and now. It is a tradition of which we are justifiably proud.

The introduction of National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime”, in 1984 began an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. NATW’s National Night Out program culminates annually, on the first Tuesday of August.
