Chuck Ashby is an Air Force Veteran who has worked for Catholic Charities/MANA House for 12 years. He is the Veteran’s Outreach Coordinator for the Veterans Outreach Center on the Human Services Campus.
Chuck works directly with veterans experiencing homelessness. He provides empathetic encouragement and direction for the veterans. Chuck “walks alongside” veterans as they move toward housing, employment, and other services so that they become integrated into the greater community.
The priesthood requires the ability to talk to people from all walks of life and see the humanity within them. For the Diocese of Phoenix Seminarians at Nazareth House, volunteering with the veterans experiencing homelessness at Catholic Charities MANA (Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force) House has been both humbling and enlightening.
