A Story of Hope

About to be evicted and recently laid off, Sarah came to Catholic Charities looking for a miracle: “I have laid awake at night thinking...How am I going to do this? Where is the money going to come from?” We were able to get her through her financial crisis and created an individualized housing stability plan for her so she wouldn’t have to worry about her basic needs in the future. “I wanted to better my condition, and I got 100% support,” Sarah said.
