Phi Tau Omega

Formed in 1925 by eight women, Phi Tau Omega became a national social and philanthropic sorority. With chapters in five different states, Phi Tau Omega’s generosity reaches numerous communities.

National Philanthropics include Box Tops and Soup Labels for Education, Ronald McDonald House and Coupons for Troops. Each year, the National President selects a Philanthropic Platform that all chapters are encouraged to work to benefit. In addition, each chapter selects local philanthropic endeavors to benefit by volunteer hours as well as monetary donations.

With an active membership of over 250 women, Phi Tau Omega is always looking for women who share our passion for friendship and philanthropy. For more information about our sorority, please contact us at ptosorority@gmail.com.


Why Phi Tau Omega?

eta-chapter-sonnetWhen a friend asked me to join Sorority 23 years ago, I accepted thinking it would be a great way to meet new friends. Little did I know that it would become so much more than that. Not only have I made life-long friends, but Phi Tau Omega has given me the satisfaction of helping others in our community. There are no words to describe the heart-warming satisfaction you feel when we reach out to help children, the elderly, people in need or people that are ill. I am truly grateful that I was given the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful organization.

Autism

autismAutism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. With the May 2013 publication of the DSM-5 diagnostic manual, all autism disorders were merged into one umbrella diagnosis of ASD. Previously, they were recognized as distinct subtypes, including autistic disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and Asperger syndrome.
