9th Imperial Deputy for the Desert
Greetings, and welcome to the page of the Georgia Auxiliary of the Prince Hall Shriners. We are an auxiliary of female family members of Prince Hall Shriners, and we strive to support our Nobles in all their endeavors.
Our purpose as an Auxiliary, is to unite the relatives of all members of the A.E.A.O.N.M.S. into one common bond of friendship, to practice charity and benevolence, and to inculcate honor and integrity as symbolized in the legend of the Egyptian queen.
The Court, a charitable and benevolent organization, stresses the development of powerful leaders, encourages health awareness among youth and adults, provides services to help disabled and senior citizens, provides for effective networking among its members and other organizations, recognizes and celebrates the historic and current achievement of African American women, exerts positive influence and utilizes the tool of role modeling for youth, teenage mothers, high school and college students, and disseminates information for educational opportunities and career planning to youth and young adults.
Specific program thrusts include education and scholarship, health, mentoring our youth and senior citizens, book bags and school supplies for adopted schools, and the Youth. In addition to volunteer activities, financial donations are made annually to College Fund/UNCF, scholarships, Health and Medical Research, American Cancer Society, Mental Retardation, NAACP, National Foundation (Birth Defects), HIV/AIDS Awareness and other civic and special interests.
Currently, we have 11 Courts spread throughout the state of Georgia.
Please take a moment and see the wonderful things that the Daughters of the Desert of Georgia are doing. Perhaps you are a traveling Daughter and seek refuge under one of our domes, maybe want some place to fellowship or perhaps you want to join our ranks. Either way, our doors are open to one and all, and if you need time to think about it, we will leave the light on for you.
