Shaylyn has been with Catholic Charities for a little over a year and is a Housing Case Manager in our new office in Page, Ariz. Her commitment to help and to heal is apparent in the dedicated assistance she provides to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

Catholic Charities staff in Flagstaff, Ariz. collected and distributed gifts to clients in the Housing Services program, thanks to the generosity of donors and community partners. Individuals and families received gift cards, new shoes, toys, scarves, stockings, hygiene items and other goodies.

When Rebecca adopted Miles, she gained not only a son, but a new sister too. Foster care and adoption can create unbreakable bonds that spread joy and bring families together.

For therapeutic foster children, who struggle with mental, emotional, and behavioral difficulties, participating in enriching childhood activities like summer camp can be a challenge. That’s why Catholic Charities and its partner MATFORCE, an organization aimed at reducing substance abuse, worked to bring the summer camp experience to therapeutic foster children in Prescott and Yavapai County.

A mother of two recently secured rental assistance through the Frances Cares Grant, which assists those who have past-due rent balances resulting from COVID-19. When her case manager informed her she would be receiving rental assistance, she cried tears of joy and felt a huge weight lifted off her shoulders.

Crystal, a foster mom in St. Johns, Ariz., has found love and positivity in embracing the unknown. Her YouTube channel "Crazy Pieces" has allowed her to bring recognition and validation to foster children, foster parents, and adopted children everywhere.
