Welcome to the Patrician Society!

The Patrician Society provides help for elderly people on fixed incomes, homeless persons, parents who receive public assistance while caring for children, residents of boarding homes, recently unemployed and underemployed family breadwinners and others in need. We have been serving the economically marginalized community in the greater Norristown since 1981.

Mission Statement

The Patrician Society of Central Norristown functions as a nonprofit, nonsectarian organization designed to meet the basic human needs of economically disadvantaged adults, children and families in our community. The Patrician Society will utilize volunteer workers whenever possible and will solicit private and public monetary and in-kind resources for use in the conduct of its programs.

Such conduct is prohibited in any form in the Patrician Society environs and at any agency-related functions. This policy applies to all Patrician Society employees, volunteers, clients, guests, and vendors.
