Augustinian Defenders of the Rights of the Poor (ADROP) is about building bridges — bridges between people, communities, social service organizations, health care providers, politicians and others. At the heart we are about community, recognizing that we all play a role in society and that we all journey together. By building bridges throughout a community — connecting individuals across economic, political and religious spectrums — we work toward a community that recognizes the dignity and respect owed to all persons.
We carry out that mission in three ways: to empower and collaborate with the poor and those without a voice in society by providing programs that match needs with identified resources; to educate the decision makers, service providers and the recipients of services; and to create reflection opportunities for all to reflect and meditate on the human condition.
