She is passionate about helping nonprofits share the impact of their work in a digital world. Holly has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Cameron University. Outside of work, Holly enjoys spending time with her family.

Maria was raising her two young grandsons when she lost her home, car and everything she owned in a fire.

They were homeless and didn’t know how they would start over. A family member told them about Verde Villas and the affordable housing program at Catholic Charities.

Each housing community held its own event hosted by Catholic Charities team members. Residents were excited to get involved and enjoy a time filled with games, food and music.

When people consider becoming foster parents, they often wonder if they will be able to handle the ups and downs of foster care. Others wonder if fostering will be too hard.

Sharon Martinez didn’t let any of those fears stop her from becoming a foster parent. “I am 66 years old and on dialysis,” said Sharon.  “Most of the kids that come to live with me call me Grandma.” Don’t let her age fool you, Sharon’s feisty personality is exactly what these kids need.

As a training and development specialist, Michele Bellenir works in the Catholic Charities human resource department to ensure that everyone on the team has the training and resources they need to do their jobs. 

One of the benefits of working for a nonprofit is knowing that the work you do is more than a job, your work makes a difference in people's lives. Catholic Charities' mission is to help our community's most vulnerable isn’t just for the staff that works with clients--it extends to all of our staff.

Jessie Grissom was excited to leave Georgia for a job in the West. He had been promised a job near the Grand Canyon, but when he arrived the job had been given to another.

Alone, Jessie hitched a ride to Flagstaff. He didn’t have a place to live or a support system. He knew he needed help and found Catholic Charities.
