Basileus Welcome

Brian J. Foster – Basileus 2020-2021

Hello and welcome to the virtual home of the Pi Omega chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated, the pearl of the 2nd district, home of the Charm City Ques. I, along with the brothers of this Pi Omega, thank you for visiting.  .

The Pi Omega Chapter is one of the oldest chapters of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Our chapter has been a mainstay in the Baltimore community since 1921.  Our Fraternity center is located in the heart of West Baltimore at 2003 Presbury Street. It is here that our body of 200+ college educated African American men, organize and strategize how Pi Omega can best uplift the city of Baltimore and its surrounding communities.  As men of Omega, our aim is to serve the community and our mission is to exemplify our Cardinal Principles of Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance and Uplift to positively impact the citizens of Baltimore.

With the COVID-19 pandemic taking its toll on our communities, Pi Omega is still working hard to ensure that we are a beacon of light during these different times.  We continue to protect ourselves and serve the community through various outlets, including our annual Thanksgiving Day dinners for the community, toy drives and toy give-a-ways for under-privileged families and children throughout Baltimore and the state of Maryland, health screenings via our annual Staying Alive Health Fair for the residents of West Baltimore, and we partner with the Maryland Food Bank and the Matthew Henson Elementary school to host monthly food give-a-ways in the community.  Our Omega Baltimore Foundation, which is located at the Easterwood Recreation center, leads a S.T.E.M. program for local children to be introduced to and  learn new technologies, as well as have a safe haven to grow.  Omega Baltimore provides an environment where Baltimore youth are mentored, tutored, fed and given an example of positive and successful African American men. The Pi Omega Foundation, our 501c(3) organization is responsible for raising funds to assist with providing annual scholarships to deserving students slated to attend a Historically Black College or University. 

The Pi Omega chapter takes extreme pride in presenting our annual Talent Hunt, one of Omega Psi Phi’s national mandated programs.  The Talent Hunt allows local youth to showcase their talents in various artistic forms displaying their incredible imagination, gifts and creativity.  The winner of this event receives a prize along with an opportunity to compete on the district level which includes contestants from all five (5) states in the district.

Our annual fundraising events include the Pi Omega Foundation Mardi Gras weekend held in February in downtown Baltimore, the Pi Omega Foundation Golf Tournament held in June, and the Pi Omega Chapter Crabfeast which takes place in August.  We encourage you to remain connected with us even during these uncertain times as we understand with proper knowledge, planning, patience and faith, we as a community will get through this pandemic and return to some semblance of normalcy. With the return of a new normal, we welcome you to attend one of our signature fundraising events.  As always the brothers of Pi Omega hope that you ard your family, STAY SAFE, STAY FAITHFUL and BE BLESSED!

Again, thank you for visiting our virtual home and if you have any questions, or need information on upcoming events please contact us at charm-cityques@piomega.org or reach me at PiOmegaBasileus@oppf.org.

Sincerely,
