Outreach and Case Management
Brigida is a single mother who works hard to provide for her children while inspiring them to stay motivated so they all might find easier days on the road ahead. When Brigida contacted Catholic Charities, she was suffering from multiple health issues, raising her two children, and working whenever possible.
The Coronavirus Pandemic left the family struggling financially and with the fear that the situation would only worsen, she reached out to us for help. When she reached out, Brigida was in need of food, money, help to create a plan to better her financial situation, and resources that might get her through these difficult times. Brigida was connected with Laura, an Outreach Case Manager who listened to her immediate needs and found solutions to help. Laura was able to provide her with financial aid that could be used to pay bills, buy food, or provide necessities for her and her children. Laura also helped Brigida enroll at a community clinic, so she was able to get the medical care that she needed, which eased some of the concerns for her own health and safety through the COVID-19 outbreak. She also helped her create a plan to better her financial situation and ultimately become independent from the program.
Brigida says Catholic Charities provided her with services that were “lifesaving at a very rough time, when my kids and I were most in need.” Despite her recent hardships, Brigida was able to continue to provide constant support and care for her children, while inspiring them to do well in school and set goals for their futures so they will not struggle in the way their mother has.
