From the Executive Director:



As supporters of our organization, I wanted you to know that I will be leaving the Poverello Center at the end of July. Because I care so deeply about the Pov and want to leave it in capable hands, I have made sure to give plenty of notice.

I am extremely proud of the work that we have accomplished over the past five years. Despite weathering staggering budget cuts in 2016, two catastrophic plumbing issues, and a global pandemic, we have emerged as a stronger agency; one that serves our mission and our guests with compassion and diligence. I know that I am leaving the Poverello Center in solid financial and programmatic shape, and even though I am sad to leave, I am excited for the incredible opportunities that are ahead for the Pov. 

Our Board of Directors are working diligently to develop a thoughtful plan so the Poverello Center can have a smooth transition. If you know of anyone that would be a great leader to take the Pov to the next level, we would appreciate any recommendations you may have and invite you to send them to More information about the transition can be found on our website.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Poverello Center and our mission to provide food, shelter, help, and hope to all who ask!

Take care,
