WHERE THE MONEY GOES
The Poverello Center, Inc., was originally founded in 1987 by Father Bill Collins to feed people who at the time, were dying in large numbers from complications from AIDS. Today, Poverello continues providing food as medicine to people with HIV who are living with the virus as a chronic condition, but also provides food as medicine to people with Cardiac and Kidney problems as well as those with glycemic disorders, Cancer or other Critical/Chronic illnesses. Each year nearly 3,000 families needing support come to the Poverello Center, Inc. to select medically appropriate grocery items from our specialized healthy groceries.
As one of the only 100% consumer choice, medically tailored grocery pantry’s in the country, Poverello also makes available without charge, medical nutrition therapy, wellness services and linkage into care services for people who have fallen out of primary medical care.
At our Live Well Center, any person with chronic illness in the community may access our full-service gym, chiropractic services, acupuncture, haircuts, reiki or massage free of charge. The idea is to provide a safe, accepting place for people to receive support and health services. Persons in the community who have clothing or household item needs and receive services from us are provided for from items donated by the community to our thrift store.
