Philoptochos

Philoptochos

Philoptochos is the philanthropic arm of the Greek Orthodox Church.  Philoptochos means "friend of the poor" in Greek.  It is a national organization for women age 18 and older.  We work towards giving back to our community as well as supporting Metropolis and National level ministries.  If you want to learn more about the National Philoptochos Society click here.

History
