Poverello House Receives Donation from the Guarantee Good Will Network

Posted on by

The Guarantee Good Will Network recently made a $2,000 donation to the Poverello House.  Along with providing meals to the homeless, the Poverello House operates two temporary shelters that have provided a place for people to live as they re-build their lives.  Poverello has a 28-bed residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.  And the Village of Hope gives temporary shelter to up to 66 men and women who would otherwise be living on the street.
In December 2003, a ‘Shantytown’ had developed outside Poverello House gates on F and Santa Clara Streets. Poverello House staff, business owners, Fresno Police, community activists and the homeless themselves realized that many illegal activities associated with this area had become a severe problem. While City officials and Poverello House were discussing possible solutions, a group of homeless individuals held meetings and made decisions of their own – to create a supportive community of Fresno’s homeless. The collaboration between these two groups led to the Michael McGarvin Jr. Village of Hope in February 2004.
The Village of Hope is self governed and largely self supporting with oversight provided by Poverello House staff. The Village believes that it has a role in the wider Fresno community, part of chores assigned to residents includes clean up of surrounding businesses and other areas. The Village residents perform odd jobs and recycle cans to raise funds for their special events, including donations to nonprofit organizations. In supporting one another, there have been many success stories. Residents have gone on to employment, scholastic achievement and permanent housing.
Poverello House’s substance abuse rehabilitation program is open to adult male substance abusers with no income, physically able to work; be able to function in a structured group environment; willing to make a commitment to staying six months in the program and show a willingness to adopt a sober lifestyle.
