“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…

“When I had my daughter, she had to have open heart surgery. When she came home from the hospital, she needed a lot of care, so I couldn’t work anymore. I was living in a house here in Palm Bay—a four-bedroom house—and the owners told me in less than 45 days, they would be taking…

“I give Catholic Charities credit everywhere because this ministry has made all the difference in my life. I had lost my job, and at the time, my husband had lost his job. I was trying to find another job. I was doing everything on my own. Long story short, I’m on my own now.  …

“I attended an Emmaus retreat in 2016 where a speaker shared her story [about her recovery following an abortion]. Her story resonated with me, and it planted a seed and desire to seek healing. I got a call from a friend who shared with me that the Project Rachel helpline was available in Orlando and…

“Catholic Charities helps people within the community. They touch everybody here, so that was one of the main reasons that brought me here. What has impacted me the most is being able to touch so many people within the population because every day it’s someone different. One day, you’re helping feed people who don’t have…

"I have to take care of my elderly mother, and I’m not able to work, so we’re basically living on social security income. I’m more isolated due to the pandemic and unable to get help with people coming in and taking care of my mom, so that also limits my resources. The need has increased…
