Tau Xi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated was chartered on December 12, 1992 in Hamden, Connecticut under the leadership of Former North Atlantic Regional Director Erma W. Barron. Realizing there was a need for leadership, service, fortitude and sisterhood in the greater Hamden, Connecticut area the chartering members of Tau Xi Omega worked tirelessly to bring the presence of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority to the area.
Despite many challenges faced, the small but dedicated chapter of Tau Xi Omega has worked hard to uphold the values of Alpha Kappa Alpha by making an impact in the community and becoming a positive influence for all.
Tau Xi Omega has sponsored Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America, Little League Baseball and Soap Box Derby Racing to show support for the community’s youth.
