A Life Transformed With Help through the Annual Catholic Appeal
Catherine, a young woman at age 19, came to Good Shepherd Children & Family Services' maternity shelter with her three-month-old baby. She was parenting without any family support. Catherine applied for jobs with the help of a tutor and the educational coordinator. She was hired in customer service at a local hotel. She met her goals while at Good Shepherd, saved to buy a car, and moved into her own apartment with her baby after six months. Social services like these through Catholic Charities are funded in part by the Annual Catholic Appeal.
