Back around 2003, I was going through a difficult time in my life. I was involved in a domestic violence relationship that I was trying to get me and my boys away from. I lost my job. I had no money and felt helpless. My abuser used that situation to further abuse me and my boys.

Somebody told me to contact Catholic Charities for assistance on money to move with. During my interview process with Catholic charities I got a job as a homemaker. Catholic Charities paid my rent at my apartment which allowed me to save a month’s pay and move me and my boys away.

It’s now 14 years later and I'm still very grateful and will never forget the help I received.
