Stories
We came to your family shelter homeless and now we are back on our feet and in our own place. We’re still all together.
I am the “parent” for my little sisters and my brother. Your parenting classes have been a big help teaching me what to do.
My roommates and I love to go out for ice cream after work. Our counselors take us and have ice cream with us.
I love living in a Catholic Charities Senior Community. I’m the “Cruise Director” for my friends and plan all our outings.
My daughters and I take your English as a Second Language classes and practice together. Thank you!
