Help us Support A Place to Call Home
“Each individual Christian and every community is called to be an instrument of God for the liberation and promotion of the poor.” -Pope Francis
Charles spent 17 years deployed at military bases throughout the world. Returning home after an incident involving nerve gas, he began struggling with debilitating bouts of anxiety and depression.
His circumstances worsened and he couldn’t maintain a steady job. Charles
moved in with his mother, but within a year she died and his childhood home went into foreclosure.
Catholic Charities’ Project Veterans’ Independence, which guides homeless veterans into permanent housing so they can live independently and have access to support networks that get them back on their feet, reached out and helped Charles.
“I was out of the service, out of a family, out of a job and out of a home. Catholic Charities found me and helped me to not only find a place to live - but they helped me to turn my life around.” - Charles, honorably discharged US Veteran
