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.
We are impressed with the way St. Raymond’s Society invests TIME as well as money in the families they serve. During a tour of the St. Ray’s House, the program director explained the curriculum they use with the moms, My RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING Life, in detail including the research behind it. It is fascinating, to say the least. It’s no wonder it is creating such astonishing results.
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.
