Our Mission is to support mothers who have chosen life for their child, taking particular care to continue support after the baby is born. We provide resources families need to become self-reliant and we prepare them to give their child the security of a stable home.
I was a single mother myself, but I was fortunate enough to have strong family support. I shudder to think where I might have ended up without it. I know first-hand how important it is to have encouragement and support when you are trying to work, go to school, and build a life for yourself and your child. I am so pleased that we have a St. Raymond’s Society to help these young mothers navigate through all of the barriers that would otherwise prevent her from succeeding.
I found that SRS was the gold standard.
With the encouragement of my Success Coach, I had finally worked up the courage to pursue my dream of becoming an x-ray technician. Then I got the devastating news that I was not eligible for any government assistance to help cover the costs. We looked at every possible option and couldn’t find a solution, so my Success Coach and I made a commitment to pray and ask God to provide a way for me to go to college. And God must have been listening because within 24 hours, a family decided that they would donate the cost of my education to St. Raymond’s. Now I am even more motivated than before to earn my degree, because people who have never even met me believe in me and my future enough to invest in it!
I wish I would have had the support and knowledge that St. Raymond's Society offers these young mothers when I was younger. I am amazed at what they are able to accomplish and blessed to have been able to help with these young ladies and their babies.
