Ron J’s faith in God saw him through hard times and led him to Catholic Charities in Lorain County. At St. Joseph Overnight Shelter and St. Elizabeth Center, Ron found a safe place to stay and people who believed in him. “My caseworker, Stephanie, helped me so much,” he says.

Today, Ron lives in permanent housing, but he hasn’t forgotten what Catholic Charities continues to do for him. Whenever he can, Ron helps out at St. Elizabeth Center. “It’s the best I can do and the least I can do to show my appreciation,” he says.

Ron also appreciates those who support Catholic Charities. “It’s something challenging,” he says of making financial contributions, “but it’s a good thing.”
