I happen to be involved in Catholic Charities. I am in the program Street to Home. Last year at this time I was homeless and didn’t have a place to live. I got involved, and they found me a wonderful one bedroom apartment that’s all mine, and I’m just so grateful and so thankful. I’ve started going back to church.

I try to help other people too and tell them about it. So maybe they can feel like I feel. Catholic Charities has brought me back to myself and made me a whole human being. I now work for them, have been for two years and I just want to say thank you to someone.

I am very proud of my job (working as a caregiver). I wanted to share with you. In Street to Home, we have our Christmas party and everyone gets up and shares their story, and I guess I needed to get that out.
