Piper Trust: Circle the City
ABOUT THE VIRGINIA G. PIPER CHARITABLE TRUST
At 58, Sister Adele O’Sullivan gathered up all her life experiences—Roman Catholic Sister with the Congregation of St. Joseph, pharmacist, medical doctor, advocate for the poor—and took another step in her faith journey. Her founding of Circle the City, a nonprofit community health organization that serves people experiencing homelessness, is also a classic example of an encore career move. Today, Circle the City is thinking about its next steps. What are the missing pieces in the continuum of holistic healthcare for homeless people? Whatever path they pursue, experience tells Sister Adele she won’t walk alone.
