Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C., January 9, 1914, by three young African-American male students. The Founders, Honorable A. Langston Taylor, Honorable Leonard F. Morse, and Honorable Charles I. Brown, wanted to organize a Greek letter fraternity that would truly exemplify the ideals of brotherhood, scholarship, and service. The brothers of Phi Beta Sigma are the Fraternity’s most valuable resource and strength. They are the primary means by which the Phi Beta Sigma objectives will be achieved. In order to accomplish the Fraternity’s objectives, it is essential that systems are instituted that effectively embody “Culture For Service and Service For Humanity” and promote brotherhood, scholarship and service.

The Salvation Army in Winston-Salem has been in operation since 1907. The first services of The Salvation Army focused on the poor and indigent of our city.

Today The Salvation Army Center of Hope also includes a homeless shelter for families and single women. In addition to meeting basic needs and offering enrichment programs, The Salvation Army provides spiritual guidance and instruction through weekly worship services, Bible studies, music instruction, and character-building activities.
