Mission Statement

To promote charitable, benevolent, and philanthropic causes by helping the poor, the hungry, the aged, the sick, the unemployed and the orphaned. 
Philoptochos also assists those in need with medical bills, rent, utilities, burials, children’s medical needs, natural disasters, and so much more.

Where there is a need, Philoptochos stands ready to help.  
Philoptochos is the right hand of the church, an army of agape, that conquers pain and anguish through generosity and kindness.  
A model of cooperation in the Greek Orthodox Church of America that exemplifies “alone we can do little, but together we can do so much.”

This group of volunteers supports outreach programs in the Archdiocese, Metropolis, and local parish. Its volunteers form an active part of life in the local community and have individually and collectively been strong supporters of the church throughout the years.
