Friends of the Poor brings together those who have the desire to give with those who are in need of assistance, in order to ease the burden of living in poverty and enhance the quality of life for all.

Friends of the Poor was founded by Sister Adrian Barrett, IHM, in 1986 and is sponsored by the Congregation of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Friends of the Poor is a non-profit charitable organization.
