Renewing HOPE

Featured Story:
Henry

“I am very happy I stuck with the Renewing HOPE program because I got the support I needed. It really changed my life.”

Henry came to Catholic Charities after his employer of 17 years went out of business. He was confused and didn’t what to expect in a shelter. He was pleasantly surprised to find how modern and nice the facilities were. Even though he was impressed by the welcoming conditions of the shelter, he knew he wanted more. After only one day, a friend recommended he try the Renewing HOPE program.

He loved that the program helped him with online job applications, something he didn’t have experience with. He also greatly appreciated the private housing arrangement, free meals, and support he received from his case manager.

While in the Renewing HOPE program, Henry applied to over 200 jobs and received 9 interviews. He almost lost hope that something would work out. In his final interview, he was hired on the spot! He now enjoys his new job back in the service industry.

Henry appreciates Renewing HOPE for helping him find structure and support in a very difficult time. Now Henry encourages others to join the program through his positive example.
