Alpha Omicron Sigma Chapter of
SIGMA GAMMA RHO SORORITY, INC.
On July 7, 1939 in New York City, New York the Rhoer Club of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority was created. The Rhoer Club is a united group of young women that engage in leadership development, community service, academic and personal counseling, mentoring, and special youth programs. Rhoer Clubs provide young ladies, ages 13 to 18, with the opportunity to build self-esteem, learn more about their heritage, and hone the skills needed to be successful academically and personally.
Since Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. believes in training young girls to be leaders in their own lives and communities, education is central in all the Rhoer Club programming. With education, we believe the young women in our Rhoer Clubs across the nation can truly reach their full potential and make a positive impact in their community.
In Dallas, the Alpha Omicron Sigma Rhoer Club has been able to host swim clinics to combat the drowning rates of children of color and promote water safety; provide entire classrooms with school supplies through fundraising; and engage in meaningful community service opportunities across the metroplex. The Alpha Omircron Sigma Rhoer Club’s community programming and service projects have paved the way for local, regional, and national recognition and awards. Our Rhoer Club gets a chance to meet other Rhoers from all over the country at local, regional, and national conferences to exchange ideas, receive training, and just HAVE FUN. From participating in dance clinics, attending interactive workshops, and building friendships through club events, our Rhoers always have a great time.
Today there are thousands of Rhoers across the country working together, as sisters, to grow individually and uplift their communities.

Many years ago, alumnae chapters of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. realized the importance of the prestige, goodwill and cooperation of women who, for various reasons, were not members of any Greek letter organization. Many of these women were of the highest caliber with outstanding religious, educational, civic and social connections; women who were substantial, dependable, and who exerted the energy and willingness to be active participants in helping Sigma Gamma Rho render service to humankind and improve the community.
Since its inception, Sigma Gamma Rho has promoted unity among women and for years many alumnae chapters worked with individuals who were not members of Greek-lettered organizations. These women were organized into auxiliaries that had various names until 1954 when the sorority officially approved the organized affiliate group and accepted the name of "Philo"(meaning Friend)as their official name.
In 1980, the Philos were organized on a national level and have grown to represent hundreds of women organized on a regional level as well. The Philos have contributed countless hours of community service and thousands of dollars to aid Sigma Gamma Rho's aim to enhance the quality of life within every community.
