To assist our fellow Himarriotans in Himarra, be they of Greek or Albanian ethnic descent, in their struggle to realize the full rights and freedoms to which they are justly due.

To promote acts of charity and philanthropy, with a main objective to assist the charitable foundations, the churches, and schools of Himarra and those of the United States which benefit our members.
