Make God's Love Visible 2017
Project for Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Cloud

Give. Help. Change.

Kristin came to Catholic Charities Emily’s Place just as 2017 was beginning. She had just completed her ninth substance abuse treatment program.

“I came to Catholic Charities with nothing. Had I not moved into Emily’s Place, I would have gone back to my old situation – and probably back to drinking. When I moved in here, I didn’t have a dime in the bank. It’s helped me see I can stay sober. I can do this.”

Catholic Charities Emily’s Place is a transitional housing program, a place where homeless women can come to re-build their lives before moving on to permanent housing. Residents pay a program fee, and work with staff to create a plan that will get them employment, savings, and a support system that will help maintain their sobriety.

Today, Kristin feels that she has purpose. She has a full-time job, and has set a goal for herself to regain her registered nursing license, and to get an apartment, with a dog.

When you support Catholic Charities, you help give a hand-up to people in need in our community. Our more than 30 programs strive to make a different tomorrow for individuals, families and communities.

Please, consider a gift to Catholic Charities to give a hand-up to someone like Kristin.
