Please help us make a difference in the lives of others! Thank you for your support.


Xi Mu Zeta Chapter was chartered in 1989 by twenty-two women linked by a common goal to support their community and to uphold the ideals of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated.  The chapter, based in Markham, Illinois, provides community service throughout Markham and other south suburbs as well as the Chicago Metropolitan area.

Honoring its commitment to women, in 1989 Xi Mu Zeta adopted the Family Rescue Shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children. Chapter members coordinate monthly workshops on health, beauty and employment to assist the women's transition back to normal lifestyles. The chapter also brings cheer to families living at the shelter during the holidays.

We are a community conscious, action oriented organization that takes a holistic approach to providing service, with a sincere desire to touch the pulse of the community through our ZHOPE programs and partners. Our signature programs, Adopt-a-Family, Girl Power, Stork's Nest, The Family Rescue Annual Holiday Party, and Bowling 4 Babies are designed to join forces with organizations in the community in efforts to serve in a consistent manner. Our charitable arm, The Pearl Foundation, funds the chapter's programs and services including scholarships.

Xi Mu Zeta Chapter believes in community involvement among youth and adults. The chapter established the Pearlette, Amicette and Archonette youth auxiliaries as well as the Amicae Auxiliary to help accomplish greater community service goals.

The chapter actively supports the efforts of local and national organizations - including The City of Markham; Family Rescue, Inc.; Ingalls Memorial Hospital; Markham Park District; March of Dimes; Salvation Army; American Heart Association; Southland Coalition to Conquer Breast Cancer; Lupus Foundation of Illinois; Healthy Baby Network; Respiratory Health Association of Metropolitan Chicago; and, Sickle Cell Disease Association of Illinois

Since its inception, Xi Mu Zeta Chapter's achievements have been applauded. During its first year, the chapter received the Fred Hampton Scholarship Image Award for outstanding community involvement. Since then, the chapter has received many other certificates of merit within the Sorority and the community we serve.
