My name is Judy, and I am 56 years old. I was working full time but then needed a total knee replacement. Since I was unable to work, after six weeks of not being able to pay my rent, I was kicked out. This began my journey of homelessness. I started out living in my car and then was able to get a good job. But I was in a car accident and totaled my vehicle. So, I had no place to stay and I was walking to work. So, I decided to go to Catholic Charities to ask about options for me. I learned about how to get into the residency program at Samaritan House Fort Collins- Catholic Charities – Larimer County. It was the answer to my prayers because I knew I could never survive on the streets. My case manager was an angel. She looked up resources, saved my bed for me when I ended up in the hospital six times and was always there for me. It was not easy, but it’s the journey that God had led me on. I’m very comfortable talking to other homeless people about God because if I didn’t have faith, I would have committed suicide long ago. Through the help of Catholic Charities, I have had housing for almost a year. I’m so beyond excited, because I now have work and I can be a productive citizen again. It’s not for us to judge anyone else and the staff here at Catholic Charities are very careful not to judge. In fact, if you look carefully, you may see wings on some of them!
