For the last 8 years I have made a cash donation to the Poverello House. I have been blessed with the life I have and wanted to donate to an organization like the Poverello House. I believe in their mission and am proud of the work they have done. God bless the Poverello House.
This is an oustanding group of folks. I donate to them on a monthly basis. They truly care for the needy and homeless in our area, exemplifying Christ's love for the poor in their work and with their actions. They serve anyone who is needy, they give them nutritious meas and provide them with both physical and mental nourishment. Much time is spent talking to the folks that need the services and genuinely helping and caring for them. Poverello House is an example of locally operated and driven non profits that work in their own community to restore it.
No hand is turned away and no one is alone out there the Poverello House opens up their hearts and tables to feed. clothe and house those in Need. One Hand Reaching out caring and sharing with everyone who in in Need. May the Lord Continue to Be with us all Reaching out to Care.
