As a part of our growing electronic footprint, and with ever-changing technological advancements, I am proud to welcome you to the new Imperial Website for the A.E.A.O.N.M.S., Inc.
This site will be your one-stop-shop for all things A.E.A.O.N.M.S., Inc., and I encourage you to visit us often. Please note that you may also find links to our various social media platforms throughout the website, as we continually look for ways to keep you informed.
National Community Health Initiative
The purpose of the National Community Health Initiative (NCHI) is to promote education and awareness regarding diseases and health conditions that disproportionately impact communities of color and to eradicate the associated health disparities.
The NCHI aims to improve the lives of members of the A.E.A.O.N.M.S. family and the communities in which we are members through the financial support of research and national outreach efforts.
The Shriners as Mentors Program (S.A.M.) started in 2005 at the A.E.A.O.N.M.S. Convention in New Orleans, LA.
Over the past years, this program has achieved high levels of acclaim, with ninety-five percent (95%) of the Deserts (individual states or specific regional areas) throughout the Domain (Jurisdiction) having a mentoring program for at-risk youth.
Imperial HBCU Initiative
The HBCU Initiative Committee will serve the Imperial Council as the conduit towards bringing awareness and support to HBCUs.
This committee coordinates the raising of funds to support scholarships for students enrolled at our nation’s Historically Black College and Universities on a monthly basis.
All disbursements are monitored and coordinated through this committee as directed through the Imperial Council.
