From our Founder – Father William Collins
Dear Friends:

Simply stated, Poverello serves those who are in need and are among the most forgotten.

My dream was first envisioned more than twenty-five years ago when I began to minister to local HIV/ AIDS patients who were discharged from the hospitals with little or no thought to their continued welfare.

Poverello is dedicated to honor the dignity of those affected by the HIV/AIDS virus and to serve them with the highest possible degree of understanding, respect, and love. The primary goals in serving our clients are to ease the stress and loneliness caused by the virus, and to their nutritional and other basic living requirements.

The backbone of Poverello is the quality of its volunteer/client relationships. Perhaps more than any other illness, HIV/AIDS challenges human relationships most deeply. It causes us to evaluate our attitudes regarding morality, sexuality, and how we judge one another. It gives us pause to think about whom we include in “our” community and who we identify with as a part of “us” versus “them”. AIDS gives us a mirror in which we see who we are and how we respond to others. Our Clients are facing the combined issues of MORTALITY and SURVIVAL.

With your ongoing love and support Poverello is prepared to stand with them and to serve them.

This web site is designed to help everyone understand the scope and needs of the Poverello Center. I invite you to take a journey through my world and see the many faces that need your help today.

Fr. William F. Collins, OFM

Increased physical activity is tied to better medical outcomes. Working out increases muscle mass and helps fight HIV-related wasting. Greater physical activity assists in the assimilation of HIV medications. Not only does exercise accomplish these goals but it also increases endorphin production, which stimulates feelings of well-being.
