Martha

“I’ve known about Catholic Charities since I got to Orlando in 2002. I have been back a few times since then. Two months ago, we were short on money because of the economic situation right now. I needed to send money to my parents because my mom is ill, and my husband is disabled. He…

Mom

“My husband and I couldn’t get pregnant, and we used a fertility clinic. At my first scan, when I found out I was pregnant, it was a happy moment, but I found out I was pregnant with triplets. Immediately, my doctor went pale, and said, ‘This is not good. I’m so sorry. Look, there is…

“I just felt like helping places, so I just called around to everybody, when things first started opening up. They needed help here, so I jumped on it, and I’ve been here a little over a year. What I love about volunteering here, is that everybody gets along well, and that’s great. For the most…

“I’m associated with St. Charles [Borromeo Catholic Church and School], and our school collects canned goods every week. Everything is donated, and so I wanted to figure out where it was actually going, and wanted to be a part of it to see the end result. My husband and I started a year and a…

Maria

“I found out about the Mission Market from a friend. They are very good people. I get food and volunteer. I come help—like today—when they’re short-staffed. They’re very good people. When I see that they’re stressing out because they don’t have enough volunteers, I come and help. They’re good people, and they help the community…

Luis

“I was set on fire in a random attack. I was homeless. I went to the hospital for third and second degree burns. I don’t have any family here, so the hospital placed me in Pathways to Care for aftercare. A big part of me being homeless is because I’m an alcoholic and an addict.…

Genevieve & Gisela

Genevieve: “When I was 10, I got onto this game, where you could be anything you want at any time. At the time, I loved My Little Pony, and they had a My Little Pony server. So I went on that server, and immediately, guys were all around—older guys. I met this one guy, and…

Diego

“We lived in Cuba. Cuba has a totalitarian regime. My wife is a doctor, and they wanted to force her to go to Venezuela on a mission. She got pregnant with our girl, and they do not allow pregnant women, so since then, our life got complicated. Over there if you do not cooperate with…

Veronica

“I was with my children’s father for 13 years. I left one evening with my kids. I was in a hotel for three days, and then I called Harbor House [a domestic violence shelter]. I didn’t have a job. I had no money. I had literally nothing except the car, which broke while I was…
