Giving Roots the Room to Grow: Carla’s Story

by Catholic Charities – March 31, 2022

Standing in her new apartment, single mother of three and domestic abuse survivor Carla proudly shares her journey of overcoming obstacles and achieving economic and personal success with the support of our team at Catholic Charities SF HOME.

Over several years, our dedicated SF HOME team partnered with Carla to help her plan and achieve six-month and year-long goals which included finishing high school, finding a career, and having a stable home. Today, Carla is proud to say she has met all her goals and is thriving as an apprentice gardener for the City of San Francisco.

We are thrilled to see how far Carla has come and can’t wait to see her continue to shine.
