These people genuinely care about the women and their children, and all they want to do is see you thrive. It’s not just a place to sleep every night.
St. Raymond's have been just a great support because being a single struggling mother is not easy. I can't thank the staff and organization enough for all they have done.
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.
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.
