POVERELLO HOUSE
June 2, 2011

Excellent Non-Profit run by people who truly care for the homeless in our community. The facility is clean and organized, the volunteer coordinator easily accessible and friendly and there are always snacks for volunteers! My first visit to the Poverello House came when my now 24 year old son was in 7th grade. He came home questioning why he was not allowed to have $100 tennis shoes like the other boys at school. Instead of going into a long explanation about needs and wants, his dad and I planned a trip to the Poverello House. After making lunches, cleaning, breaking down boxes, and serving the clients, our son had a better appreciation for the privileges he already had. On the way home from our volunteer Saturday he asked the question, "There are homeless kids in Fresno?" He didn't get the $100 tennis shoes and never asked for them again.
