Friend of the poor
The word "Philoptochos," meaning "friend of the poor," aptly describes this multi-faceted organization whose philanthropy extends not only to families in need, the sick and the elderly, but to programs and institutions in our communities, our Holy Archdiocese and Ecumenical Patriarchate. The philanthropic endeavors of the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society is a genuine expression of love and Christian Charity. This expression of love is evident in the multitude of meaningful programs and services that reach those in need on a local, national and global level.
