Impact Stories: Outreach and Case Management

MEET BEA

Bea and her husband arrived in Wisconsin with nothing but the clothes on their backs. As the political and economic environment of Venezuela worsened, they were awarded visas and entered the country as asylees. Arriving seven months pregnant, Bea was fearful that she would not have a successful pregnancy. “I didn’t know where to start,” she confided in her case manager. Through Catholic Charities, Bea and her husband were connected with local community organizations that provided pregnancy resources and household necessities. Bea and her husband felt comfortable with their case manager, knowing that no matter the obstacle, they would work through it together. By the time Bea delivered her son, they had a safe place to bring baby home and a support system of family, friends, community and Catholic Charities.

 

MEET COSTANZA


Overcome with financial burdens, Costanza called our Outreach program for help. She was working part-time, recently separated from her husband, and felt emotionally drained. In her first meeting with the case manager, Costanza revealed her history of abuse.

With her case manager’s help, they developed a plan for recovery. They set an appointment with a Catholic Charities’ bilingual therapist to work through past trauma. The case manager provided a list of food and clothing pantries, helped Costanza apply for energy assistance, set up doctor appointments, and registered for a pharmacy discount card. She also helped Costanza search and apply for full-time employment.

Today, Costanza has a new job with good benefits and is living independently and hopeful.
