About S.O.S.


How It All Began 

Sisterhood Of Servants™ was created in 2007 by Phylicia Perry in response to a growing trend she noticed among the women in her circle of influence.

Wherever there was a job to be done or a goal to be accomplished, there were a few faithful, selfless women who carried the bulk of the load while the vast majority stood by and reaped the fruit of their labors.  Even while traveling abroad and observing the interaction between women, Phylicia realized that the phenomenon of "a few doing the tasks of many" wasn’t just a problem in her local community but rather a characteristic of our society in general. From this, the concept of a “sisterhood of servants” was birthed. The phrase itself was coined during a phone conversation between Phylicia and a fellow homeschool mom as they talked about ways to get more mothers involved in volunteering to organize homeschool activities.   Non-profit, charitable corporations like Sisterhood Of Servants are useful tools for bringing women together to assess the needs within a local community and implement strategies to meet those needs. When women come together with singleness of purpose, the service they provide to those in their circles of influence has the potential to make a lasting impact for generations to come.

What's in a name

Consider the following analogy between this type of organization and the S.O.S. symbol for help. Since their adoption in 1905, the letters S.O.S. have been the commonly used description for the International Morse Code distress signal. Once this combinations of symbols (. . . - - - . . .) was implemented, ship captains could instruct onboard radio operators to transmit this simple signal if the ship was in trouble, and help would be forthcoming. In modern times, people who are stranded use these same letters to indicate their urgent need for assistance. As life becomes busier and more hectic, there will be many times a woman feels as if she needs to display an S.O.S. signal to other ladies in her circle of influence. It is easy to get overwhelmed trying to juggle all the important elements of life that require time and energy: family, career, finances, community service, etc.

How refreshing it would be to know that there is a group of women who will help share in these responsibilities should one feel the need to wave a symbolic distress signal flag with a cry of "Help, I'm stranded and overwhelmed." The request could also be, "Hey, I've got a great idea. Will you help me implement this?" Hence the acronym Sisterhood Of Servants (S.O.S.) non-profit charitable corporation.

A Note From Phylicia:


  l to r: Michela, Elise, Hannah     my husband Harden and me
"As I juggle my roles as a wife, homeschooling mother of three daughters, and entrepreneur, I realize the vital role the concept of sisterhood plays in my own life. I choose not to live like an island. I know full well how many wonderful people have literally poured themselves into my life, and I'm compelled to 'share the love' and give something back as long as I have breath and eyes to see the needs of others."
