Susan, a single mom with three young children, came to Catholic Charities with a gas bill in disconnect status.  She had recently been laid off due to downsizing in her company and was without a job for the first time in her adult life. Using funds from “Keep the Kids Warm,” Catholic Charities was able to help with Susan’s gas bill. Other funds were accessed to help her with rent.

She is now stably housed, receiving financial support from family as well as financial aid for her education.
