Sister Adele's Legacy of Service

Six years ago, Sister Adele realized her vision of providing a time and place to heal forpeople experiencing homelessness. She did so by founding Circle the City’s first Medical Respite Center. Her flagship 50-bed medical respite program brought compassionate, holistic care to the most vulnerable members of our community. Today more than 10,000 men, women and children are served at Circle the City healthcare programs each year – providing a dignified place for healing and hope.


Today, we are seeking your support of the ongoing work of Sister Adele’s medical respite vision. While Circle the City is able to fund a significant portion of the healthcare costs in medical respite, there is still a funding gap for the innovative overnight shelter functions that occur in our respite programs – approximately $75 per patient, per day.


Please join us in celebrating the passion, energy and leadership of Sister Adele O’Sullivan by making a gift to support her founding medical respite vision. Our campaign goal is $100,000 with only a few weeks to go! Here’s how your gift will make a difference:
  • $2,500 provides more than one month of emergency shelter to a medically-vulnerable man or woman experiencing homelessness;
  • $1,000 supports two weeks of medical respite shelter;
  • $500 can fund an entire week of safety and shelter for someone in need.
