The Dennelisse Corporation
Dennelisse, a nonprofit corporation, describes itself more positively as an agency for social profit. It is named for the late Father Dennis Cornelisse of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Manhattan’s Lower West Side.
Dennelisse has supplied nearly 2,000 families with a weekly average in of 40 hours of homemaker services. At present, 280 homemakers and a multicultural, multilingual social work staff of 14 professionals work with more than 1,000 parents, children, and other family members—more than 40% affected by HIV/AIDS —in an atmosphere of trust and community.
