Welcome Message



On behalf of the Dovely ladies of Upsilon Omicron Zeta Chapter (YOZ) I bring you greetings from the city of South Bend, IN. I am so humbled to have been elected to the office of President of this outstanding chapter, filled with women of great strength and devotion towards upholding the mission of serving our community.

For more than 90 years Zeta has been committed to its founding principles of Scholarship, Service, Sisterly Love, and Finer Womanhood. It is my goal to continue to uphold our founding principles with the unwavering and faithful support of the YOZ members and to further our mission of outreach to our community.

GET ENGAGED


Zeta has developed Get Engaged, a Z-HOPE initiative designed to address
the underlying issues that are contributing to the senseless killing of African Americans

in the U.S.

Our objectives are threefold:

1. Drive individual and community engagement in the underlying issues that are destroying our
communities and augment an understanding of the benefits and
consequences of action or inaction.

2. Empower citizens
through knowledge sharing and fostering collective responsibility
among community members.

3.Cultivate a culture of mutual respect in our communities.

Mental Health Month



Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition. During the month of May, NAMI and the rest of the country are bringing awareness to mental illness. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for equal care. Each year, the movement grows stronger. In 2013, President Obama proclaimed May as National Mental Health Awareness Month and brought the issue of mental health to the forefront of our nation's thoughts.

We believe that these issues are important to address year round, but highlighting these issues during May provides a time for people to come together and display the passion and strength of those working to improve the lives of the tens of millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

March of Dimes


Preventing birth defects

The March of Dimes has led the way to discover the genetic causes of birth defects, to promote newborn screening, and to educate medical professionals and the public about best practices for healthy pregnancy. We have supported research for surfactant therapy to treat respiratory distress and helped initiate the system of regional neonatal intensive care for premature and sick babies. Our recent Folic Acid Campaign achieved a dramatic reduction in the incidence of neural tube defects, birth defects of the brain and spine.

Fighting premature birth

Since 2003, our fight to save babies has been strongly characterized by our Prematurity Campaign. The rising incidence of premature birth has demanded action, and the March of Dimes has responded by initiating an intensive, multi-year campaign to raise awareness and find the causes of prematurity.
