Franciscan Sisters of the Poor Foundation
Inspiring Hope and Supporting Empowerment to Transform Lives
Care for the destitute, suffering poor has engaged the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor in Italy for more than 60 years. The Sisters’ programs in Messina and Frascati assist the imprisoned and the mentally ill in their difficult and lonely rehabilitation.
In Padua, immigrant victims of human trafficking find safe haven and essential professional services as they begin their journey towards freedom and independence. Homeless men and women in Rome enjoy socialization, and adolescents, university students and families benefit from counseling and retreats.
