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.

how we have helped

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.

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.

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!

After spending so much time at the St. Ray’s House, I understand why the program is called My RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING Life.  I love this place and what happens here really is ridiculously amazing!
