Legally Blind & Facing Homelessness, Jasmine & Her Sons Found Help

 
 

Meet Them Now

It was tough enough for Jasmine and her sons, Timothy and Travis to be legally blind.  Now they and little baby Lillian faced homelessness.  Check out their story of hope and renewal in this, the final installment of our special five-part series mapping Catholic Charities in your neighborhood.


Jasmine & Her Children

Jasmine was born with a genetic eye disorder. Her eyesight deteriorated until, in her early twenties, she became legally blind — and utterly dependent on her husband.

Then, her two sons were diagnosed with the same disorder. The stress on Jasmine’s marriage became too great, and the result was divorce.

“I felt completely lost,” she says. “I felt like, how am I going to do this with two little boys? They can’t see; I can’t see. How am I going to provide for them?”

Families confronted by a crisis often feel helpless. Catholic Charities provides accurate and timely information and referrals, and will advocate for needed services. Through counseling and financial assistance, Catholic Charities’ crisis experts help individuals and families plan long-term solutions to immediate problems.

Jasmine and her 11-year-old son, Timothy, had successful operations to preserve what remained of their sight. But in the midst of recovery, another disaster struck: The city program that helped them pay rent was canceled.

“I was back and forth in housing court and the landlord,” she says. “He wanted me out, and everything I had got tossed outside.”

That’s when Catholic Charities stepped in — with housing, furniture and legal and financial counseling. Jasmine and her boys had more than a new home; they had new hope.

“I don’t know where I would be if it wasn’t for Catholic Charities,” Jasmine says.

These aren’t just stories. These are our neighbors.

Please give generously to the 2017 Annual Fund so we can continue to look after the most vulnerable among us — now, and for years to come.

Foster Children Transformed into Bronx Zoo “Explorers for a Day”

 
 

A Huge Thank You from Cardinal McCloskey Community Services

Cardinal McCloskey Services - Explorer for the Day at the Bronx Zoo

Young children in foster care earned a unique role at the Bronx Zoo last Thursday, July 13, “Explorers for a Day.” Instead of spending this sizzling summer day on steaming New York City streets, they made their way through what seemed like a dense rain forest, undeterred in their quest of finding all the wild adventures that awaited them. And it all happened thanks to teamwork between our Catholic Charities affiliate, Cardinal McCloskey Community Services, the Bronx Zoo and generous donors like you,

Every hour these children in foster care had to focus on something fun, was an hour they didn't have to think of the trauma and neglect they have experienced.    

“It was a magnificent day for these children,” says a Cardinal McCloskey spokesperson who accompanied them at this world-famous zoo. 

All children deserve love, stability and safety. When they cannot find this at home, Catholic Charities agencies step in. For more than a century, we have been recognized as major providers of high-quality foster care throughout New York.

Cardinal McCloskey Community Services (CMCS) helps protect some of the most vulnerable members of our community.  From children and teens who suffered neglect and trauma to adults with developmental disabilities, Cardinal McCloskey is part of our Catholic Charities team here to serve others.

Cardinal McCloskey Community Services provides services to over 2,000 children in our foster care programs, preschool education to over 2,500 three and four-year-olds from low income families, and helping over 200 developmentally disabled adults lead more fulfilling and independent lives. 

In our Catholic Charities foster boarding home programs children are placed in temporary, safe homes when their families are unable to care for them. In some cases, courts determine children must be removed from their homes because of abuse or neglect. In others, children are awaiting permanent placement with an adoptive family.

Foster parents are screened, certified and complete a comprehensive 30-hour training program.  This enables them to capably address the multiple issues these children face.  Issues range from separation and loss to shared parenting, behavior management, positive discipline and permanency planning.

Children with serious emotional, behavioral and other challenging conditions often benefit from family-based alternatives rather than institutional treatment. This is tough work. Catholic Charities supports participants who offer therapeutic foster boarding homes by providing frequent home visits, respite and emergency on-call services.

A huge thank you to donors and readers for this magnificent day and all you do to support our work helping vulnerable children reach their full potential!             

“The joy and excitement we saw in their eyes was a wonder to behold,” the Cardinal McCloskey spokesperson said. “It was a day they will not forget.”
