About St. Brother Albert Aid Society in English

Wyczółkowski: Brat Albert z dzieckiem

We are an independent Catholic charity. The Society’s aim is to help the poor and the homeless by following the ideas propagated by its patron, St. Brother Albert — Adam Chmielowski.

The society accomplishes its aims through:

  • • establishing and running hostels, night shelters, permanent residence homes;

  • • social work, legal and psychological help, ministry;

  • • running soup kitchens, bath houses, day rooms, clubs, organizing Christmas Eve suppers and Easter breakfasts, summer camps;

  • • distributing food, clothes, appliances, household detergents, medicines;

  • • cooperation with local and central government, the Catholic Church, non-governmental organizations;

  • • information activity, inspiring scientific research;

  • • staff and volunteers training.

Adam Chmielowski - later: Brother AlbertThe Society has been acting since 1981 and is the first non-governmental organization in Poland that started to help the homeless. Until 1989 it was named Adam Chmielowski’s Aid Society. It has 2,900 members organized in 62 Circles (branches). Each Circle (branch) tries to establish a hostel, soup kitchen or other kind of help for the poor and homeless people.

“… each hungry person should be given food, a homeless one – a place to stay, and a naked – clothes. If you cannot give much, give little…”

In our centres we also attempt to obey this rule, which was followed in the shelters organized by St. Brother Albert.

We are running 75 shelters.
