“As soon as I got here, it was like a breath of fresh air. It was kind of like a burden was lifted. We actually had a place to go. We didn’t know what to expect but it was totally different and beyond my expectations. Everybody made me feel comfortable and at home. They asked me if there was anything I needed and it was overwhelming. You can’t really explain that moment. There was a plethora of people who cared about my well-being more than my friends or family members did. The first couple nights I cried because I never met as many people that didn’t know me that cared about me. That’s what I felt when I got to Family Promise. I felt love.”



Parishioners from Ascension Catholic Community donated a vehicle so that David and Ajaray could get to and from work. David is active in aftercare with Mike, shown here in the photo.
