St. Raymond’s Society provided practical, realistic support at a time in my life when there didn’t seem to be any options for me and my daughter besides day-to-day survival. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the help we received. I am exceedingly grateful.
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.
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!
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.
