Description of Agency
In keeping with that mission and history, Friends of the Poor operates as a very unique organization. We are a non-profit, charitable organization, but we are also run entirely by volunteers. There are no paid employees so we completely rely on our great volunteers and donors.
We also have some unique programs. In our daily workings we try to provide for basic needs with food, clothing, emergency assistance, house hold items and furniture. In fact, we are the only agency in the county to give away furniture. But in adition to these essential programs we also like to host events that bring hope and brighten up the holidays. We serve a wide range of people from our senior holiday dinners, to our children's after school programs and field trips.
The mission of Friends of the Poor is to ease the burden of living in poverty and enhance the quality of life for all who live in low to moderate income communities.
Founded by Sister Adrian Barrett, IHM in 1984, Friends of the Poor brings together in friendship those who have the desire to give with those in need of assistance.
