Help local families overcome obstacles and find hope. It’s not just about weathering the storm; its about charting a course for success!

Two Single Fathers Find Stability For Their Families
Through a series of circumstances, both Michael and Micheal suddenly became single fathers. Both struggled to find stability for their families, and both began their journey with Catholic Charities of Central Colorado. Today, the families are stable, but still struggle with steady employment and paying all of their bills. One of the biggest challenges has been affordable childcare and housing along with a lack of a support system.
Michael sought help from our Castle Rock office. He said, “I could live in a cardboard box, but I needed stability for my kids.” Today, he has a job and a stable home for his family.
Catholic Charities provided the things I needed when I needed them, and that is what made the difference.
It’s my children that keep me going; they are my motivation to move forward and succeed.
Catholic Charities was the first place that gave us a chance to stop reacting to what was happening and start acting.
