Zetas Helping Other People Excel (Z-Hope) is an interactive holistic multidimensional outreach program designed to enhance, cultivate and empower participants to develop health promoting lifestyle choices across the lifespan. Specific to the population groups; Women, Youth, Seniors, Men, and International Women of Color.

In partnership with the March of Dimes, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Theta Alpha Zeta Chapter has launched the Rochester, NY Stork's Nest Prenatal Program.

Stork’s Nest is a collaborative community-based program between the March of Dimes and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. that encourages pregnant women to receive early and regular prenatal care to help them have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.

Pencils & Paper has partnered with Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Theta Alpha Zeta Chapter and the March of Dimes to provide space for the Nest. For more information contact storksnestrochester@gmail.com.

From its inception in 1920 at Howard University, Zeta women have rejected the status quo. Our Founders dared to be different by establishing a sorority that would ‘chart a course of action, raise the consciousness of their people.’ Ninety-seven years later, their courage continues to inspire us to take a stand against injustice and become beacons for positive change.

Through our GET ENGAGED™ social action program, launched under the leadership of International President Mary Breaux Wright, our sisterhood has mobilized to find new ways to solve old problems that plague the communities we serve. In these uncertain times, we must take action.
