“St. Patrick Center means a lot to me. The agency was there when I needed a new start.”
Delores never thought she would be homeless. She had lost her job due to health issues and as a result, lost her home. Not knowing where to turn, some of her friends suggested she check out St. Patrick Center to get help to find housing. Taking their advice, Delores came to the agency and began working with case workers in the housing and employment departments. Before long, she had graduated from the Living Skills program and was placed into housing!
“The agency means a lot to me,” says Delores. “Before coming here, I was sleeping in my car.” In addition to finding housing, she is proud of the things she has learned from the many programs at St. Patrick Center. “I have leaned how to cope in my situation and I’ve learned the skills needed to stabilize myself and regain employment.”
Because of her positive experience, she now recommends St. Patrick Center to her friends who may need some help in their own lives. “There are so many programs here to help people from all walks of life and the doors are always open!”
