Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., a nonprofit community-base organization, is one of the largest Greek-lettered international sororities. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority was organized over 75 years ago and its members are primarily African American.
The sorority has made significant contributions to more than 600 communities in the United States, West Africa, Germany and the Caribbean through volunteer work and outreach services. More specifically, the members are involved in the granting of scholarships, youth development projects, child care development centers, as well as women's health issues.
The March of Dimes and Zeta Phi Beta have a cooperative program called Stork's Nest®. The program was launched nationally in 1972. This program has both service and educational components. The service is the establishment of a distribution site, the "Nest," where expectant mothers, referred by cooperating hospitals, clinics, and health centers, can get necessary items such as maternity clothes, layettes and furniture at minimal or no cost. The educational component consists of seven sessions covering prenatal care, nutrition, drugs, alcohol and smoking, genetics, infant care and parenting.
Stork's Nest program objectives are to:
- Provide incentives for expectant mothers to obtain early and regular prenatal care
- Provide clothing and nursery items for pregnant women who use community health services.
- Provide educational opportunities for pregnant women to help them make informed choices and decisions relating to parenting, nutrition, and health.
- Provide information and referral to community resources to enhance the physical and emotional well-being of mothers and their families.
