Our Story and Our Members

Working Towards a Better Tomorrow

In April, 1981, co-founders, Sarah Brown, Ruth Evans and Davetta Madison,  began the formation of a new non-profit organization. The organization was called “The Emanons”.  

The membership roster included the founders and seven new members.


Davetta Madison was the first president.  She was succeeded by Charter Member Naomi Waddleton; and, Naomi was succeeded by Charter Member Arlillian Navy.


In 1987, The Emanons was incorporated.  As a non-profit charitable and educational organization, we continue to promote and conduct cultural, educational and civic programs to bring about change for the betterment of the community; as well as

to aid and improve the economic conditions of the disadvantaged.

We are a 501(c)(3) Public Charity organization
