Star Community Home

Cheryl, a 25-year-old single mother, came to Catholic Charities Star Community Home with two children who needed refuge after fleeing to an emergency shelter. Her ex-husband abused her for years but when he threatened their oldest child she found the strength to leave, taking their two sons with her. Now, after months at Star Community Home, Cheryl is heading in a new direction. With her GED, a small nest egg she earned herself, a solid job, and her boys thriving in school, Cheryl is ready to take the next step and move into a safe, permanent home with her family, leaving the years of trauma and fear behind her.
