| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Boys' Town of Italy is a charitable organization that supports homeless children from Italy and beyond.  According to an article in the New York Times, it was first established in 1945 outside of Rome by Monsignor John Patrick Carroll-Abbing, an Irish priest who came to Italy in the 1930s and worked for the Vatican.  During World War II, the monsignor worked with the Resistance and aided Jewish refugees.  After WWII, he officially opened a center for homeless children, those orphaned, abandoned, abused, and neglected.  Click here to see the brochure for the organization.
