Paul Minorini with kids
That summer, Minorini lived with the Rev. Paul Sheridan, a Jesuit priest who founded BHGH in 1977 as a spiritually-based but nonreligious, privately-funded nonprofit that provides housing, emotional and financial support and educational direction (beyond college graduation) to “academically capable and motivated children- in-need.” Minorini and Sheridan became good friends.

Despite the pull of his work with BHGH, Minorini decided the best way to help people in need was to become an attorney. So he attended Penn Law, where he developed a program for free school lunches in Philadelphia and ran a soup kitchen two nights a week. The Law School recognized his humanitarian efforts with its Outstanding Community Service Award.
