"I came to Catholic Community Services at the beginning of my pregnancy... when I was in a really bad place with no family support and no money to prepare for the [arrival] of my baby. [At CCS] I found wonderful people and resources. The staff always welcomed me with a smile, new information, and resources for every need that I had."
"Now my baby is a month old and I still get help from the wonderful people [at CCS] who are always willing to go out of their way to help. [They] are more than a resource; they are family and a great support group in the community."
