For over 16 years the Padre Pio Foundation has been caring for the homeless and those who are at risk of homelessness on their way to self-reliance.

Why are we doing this?

Political changes, which took place in Poland 30 years ago, have caused thousands of people to lose their jobs and homelessness has become a social problem. The consequences of those events are still visible today – currently estimates show there are over 30 000 homeless people in Poland. In Cracow alone, about 2 thousand people live without a home. They are often left to their own devices – without a home, job or their loved ones. 

How do we help?

The St. Padre Pio Foundation is a modern, up-to-date Caring Centre in Poland. Homeless people can get both the everyday help - take a shower, eat a hot meal, do the laundry - and long-term support from specialists such as social workers, psychotherapists, lawyers, and career advisers. This comprehensive assistance is based on an individual approach to every person in need, making real changes to their lives

At present, we support more than 2000 homeless people on their way to being independent.

You too, can help change their future and make the world a better place for them.
