We all have obstacles to overcome in life. What we learn when we go out and meet with our neighbors during our St. Vincent de Paul meetings is that some of our clients have larger hurdles than most of us. Last week, we called on a woman with a serious speech impediment who was having extreme difficulty interviewing for a new job and consequently had fallen behind on her water bill. We visited a fifty-year-old man who had endured brain cancer and surgery. The scar on his head was testament to his struggles to make the ultimate come back in his life. He needed furniture for his apartment. We met a young couple that had no vehicle and had to walk to work. They had five children with a sixth on the way. They needed a washer and a dryer. We also spoke with a client who had been caring for her sister’s three children and was in the process of adopting them because her sister could no longer care for them. Because of her legal expenses, she had fallen behind on bills. Lastly, we visited a single mom with a young autistic child who worked at a fast food restaurant and was facing a Vectren shutoff. Because of your continued generosity, we were able to help EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. Thank you.
