How We Help

Moving Lives Forward by Building Independence

"The stories of our clients can break our hearts for sure, but the incredible goodness of our volunteers and donors reassures me of the innate dignity and goodness of humanity, so I go home each night with tired bones and a light heart, and once again thank God for calling me to His work," Tony Poekert, Director of Parish & Community Outreach.
