Charity: Fourth Street Clinic


Kim Madalene Russo

Kim is a case manager at the Fourth Street Clinic, where she believes in serving those that are homeless with dignity and respect. She accepted the position at the clinic because of her deep desire to reach out to those that need a helping hand coping with the pain and fragmentation in their lives. Kim believes in the premise that healthcare is a human right. She guides the patient into restoring their self-esteem and providing them with not only healthcare but permanent supportive housing when it is available.

Since attending Westminster College and the University of Utah with social work background, Kim has spent her entire career working with youth at risk and now with the homeless. She feels privileged to have the opportunity to serve the homeless population. Kim credits her parents, Ernie and Anna Russo, who through the most turbulent times in her own life, had an unconditional love. Kim, in turn, returns that acceptance and love to the world that she now journeys through.
