Because of goodwill from humble and hardworking friends like you, Catholic Charities of St. Louis shares the joyous news that we have touched the lives and hearts of more than 136,000 neighbors in need this past year.
Your Goodwill Empowered Thomas to Have A Better Life
Because of donors like you, Thomas to achieve his dream of a home, “A new apartment that I’ve never had in my entire life!” Through Pathways to Progress, Thomas received employment and legal assistance, work supplies and other guidance. He celebrates this Christmas in a place he can call home.
Loddie and her Children also Found Hope and Peace.
This single mother will celebrate a special Christmas since she was able to find an apartment, career support, and Catholic school tuition assistance for her children. “I wanted something better for my children. I have come a long way on this journey,” she says. Because of your generosity, Loddie can give the gift of education and a brighter future to her children.
Give Hope and Peace this Christmas
That kind of giving is a “gracious act of kindness that will give hope to those who need it most,” says Tim Gamma, owner of Gamma Tree Experts and our Christmas Campaign Chairman.
Thomas and Loddie found help through Pathways to Progress, a Catholic Charities initiative aimed at reducing poverty in north St. Louis County, one family at a time, through a committed collaboration with community leaders and nonprofit agencies.
