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.

how we have helped

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.

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.

St. Raymond’s Society provided practical, realistic support at a time in my life when there didn’t seem to be any options for me and my daughter besides day-to-day survival.  We wouldn’t be where we are today without the help we received.  I am exceedingly grateful.

My Success Coaches helped me to have a clear understanding of my responsibility where my life was concerned.   Living at St. Ray’s House has allowed me to be the mother I’ve always wanted to be and become the person I was created to be.
