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.
I am not proud to say it, but we were living in our car. It was a very scary time for us. I was told about St. Raymond’s Society by the WIC office. I called that day and by the end of the week they helped me and my children with everything we needed to get into an apartment. The ladies were all so kind and understanding. You could tell they really care about people.
Giving a hand up instead of a hand out . . . helping someone stand on their own two feet . . . now that’s something that my wife and I believe in. We’ve worked hard to have what we have and we want to help others have nice things too. St. Raymond’s Society is teaching these young ladies how to work for what they want. With grit and determination. By the time they leave that House they are going to know how to get things done.
The staff and other moms, who have grown to feel more like roomies, make me feel I have an extended support system during this new endeavor.
