Poverello Center is located in Wilton Manors Florida and serves all of Broward County. Their goal is to provide life-saving nutrition, food and assist with basic living essentials. The services are provided to individuals with need qualifications living with HIV/AIDS at no cost and with a high degree of understanding, caring, respect and love. The needs of Poverello's clients are met by the distribution of free groceries and clothing from their centrally located food bank and thrift shop.

Another goal of this volunteer driven charity is to ease the stress, loneliness and in some cases alienation from family and friends that is caused by living with the HIV/AIDS virus. Your thoughtful and caring monetary gifts and donations of food, clothing and other goods that can be sold in the Poverello thrift store provides help for Broward County's brothers and sisters in need.
