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.

how we have helped

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!

St. Raymond's turns lives into miracles that spread love to a whole community.  Volunteering at St. Raymond's has definitely touched my life and heart.  This organization is outstanding!

I appreciate the resources and services St. Raymond’s Society provides our community’s single mothers and their children.  This is an organization that offers a real solution, not just and band aid and I can get behind that.  They are creating lasting changes in the lives of families.

St. Raymond’s allows me the opportunity to provide my daughter a safe home free of financial stress while I strive to meet my own goals.
