“As my mother's caretaker, I was left homeless when she passed away, and unable to work due to health issues. I remember my mom saying, "if you ever need help, go to Catholic Charities," and that is what I did. That's where I found an advocate who helped me find an apartment and secure donated furniture. My daughter is happy, there is food on our table, and I feel blessed.”
