God has truly blessed our community with the addition of St. Raymond’s Society. As the executive director of Pregnancy Resource Center for more than 12 years, I know all too well of the plight of a single mothers, much less those who finds themselves homeless. It is with great confidence that we refer these mothers to St. Raymond’s Society. Not only will they be welcomed with open arms and given a place to stay, these mothers are put on a path to self-sufficiency.
Living at St. Ray’s House was a profound experience for me. I learned so much while living there! My biggest take away was probably in the life skills department, especially time management and self-discipline. The thing I like best about St. Ray’s is that I will always be a part of the St. Raymond’s Society. I still meet with my Success Coaches every week and my Accountability Partner every month. The kids and I are invited to all of the St. Ray’s outings, celebrations and events. The only difference is that I have my own house now so sometimes we meet here.
Janey is a perfect representation of the saying: if you think my hands are full you should see my heart . . . . one cannot help but see how full her heart is as she gently cares for her tiny triplets.
At our pregnancy center, we see a great number of abortion-minded women and our most critical cases are the ones that are homeless. Having the ability to refer to St. Raymond’s Society for housing, opens up the option of parenting for these homeless mothers. We are proud to partner with such an outstanding, relevant organization.
