Outstanding Commitment to Service
Our community lovingly describes us as "Omnipresent" and we embrace this description with Finer humility. Omicron Gamma Zeta Chapter seems to be everywhere because we are focused on serving every facet of our community.
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated has a 103 year history of service in action; from youth to seniors; college students to the homeless; and young girls to Finer Women. This history of service is the central focus of Omicron Gamma Zeta Chapter's present and future; so much so we have had a service project every month of the sorority year for the last 4 years* *and counting*.
Zetas Helping Other People Excel also known as Z-HOPE™ is the National Service Program of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated and was approved and trademarked during the 2008 National Boule.
Z-HOPE™ is a combination of interactive, holistic, and multidimensional outreach programs designed to enhance, cultivate, and empower participants to develop health-promoting lifestyle choices across their lifespan. Specific to the population groups; Women, Youth, Seniors, Men, and International Women of Color.
Within OGZ our Z-Hope initiative has logged thousands of service hours and worked alongside organizations like Santa Maria Hostel, Kipp Sunnyside, March of Dimes, Texas Woman's Hospital NICU, Houston Food Bank and that list is added to with every administration.

Created by Omicron Gamma Zeta Chapter five years ago, the annual Finer Womanhood Conference was created to address the mental, emotional, financial, and educational needs of both young and older women beginning at age 15 and beyond. Through the Finer Womanhood Conference, we seek to expose the community to the diversity and authenticity of the Finer Woman.
