From its inception, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. has long demonstrated an interest in serving the needs of the community. Spanning the Sorority's nearly thirty-year partnership with the March of Dimes to its relationship with the Human Genome Project, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority has been at the forefront of anticipating the ever-changing needs of society.

It is within this framework Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. introduced a new International Service Initiative for Z-HOPE: Zetas Helping Other People Excel ™. Since 1920, our national service programs have evolved to meet the critical societal needs of the time. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority has identified some key areas of concern as part of our programmatic thrust, and all of our efforts will be consolidated under the banner of Z-HOPE.
