TyRiane just had her daughter Skye and was struggling with balancing her health and helping her 7-year-old son, Zyon, adapt to his new role as an older brother, when COVID-19 hit. Being high risk for COVID and having a new baby created extra challenges to finding work and caring for her family. TyRiane found herself without housing or furniture and was struggling to make ends meet. When the family was referred to Catholic Charities, her Pregnancy Support Case Manager recognized TyRiane’s strengths in keeping herself healthy, providing for her children, and creating a support system around herself reminding her and her children that they are loved, and they can get through these difficult times.
Working with TyRiane to establish and meet goals for her family, her case manager helps TyRiane stay motivated by reminding her of the strength she has with all she has already overcome. Her case manager also identifies and coordinates community resources and any temporary assistance she might need like help finding housing, furniture, winter jackets for Skye and Zyon, and helping her maintain a healthy lifestyle. “Every time I see the family, I see they are so resilient, and I am reminded I can be that way too and I can help TyRiane recognize these strengths in herself.”
