A Veteran’s Journey

With nothing but the clothes on her back, a veteran walked into Catholic Charities of Kansas City-St. Joseph’s Welcome Center. She had no money, no home, and not even basic identification. The veteran despaired about her situation, convinced that she was a lost cause. Undeterred, the staff rallied around her, providing the most basic needs and further connecting her with the VA and government officials for proper documents. For the first time in a long time, she felt hope.

Within weeks, she had a roof over her head and found employment—a stepping stone towards stability and self-sufficiency. She also confronted her demons head-on – battling addiction, grappling with PTSD, and addressing legal issues that had long plagued her. With unwavering support from her case manager and the tireless dedication of the support staff, she overcame each hurdle with resilience and grace.

As the months turned into years, her transformation from despair to triumph was remarkable. In November 2024, she will stand on the precipice of freedom from her criminal past when her parole comes to an end. Although the road ahead is still uncertain, she is looking forward with newfound hope and confidence.
