Client Story

Maria, struggling with an addiction to methamphetamine, left her home country of the Philippines when she was only in 7th grade. Her struggles continued after moving to Omaha and her husband, who worked for Catholic Charities, asked her repeatedly to seek treatment at Catholic Charities.  “Eventually I hit the bottom and it came to the point where I was tired, homeless, and he wouldn’t let me see my kids,” Maria says. “I decided to try it and see if it worked. And it saved my life.”

Four years ago, Maria received the help she needed at the Omaha Campus for Hope in the short-term residential program. She has been sober ever since. After two years of sobriety, Maria applied to work as a detox specialist at Catholic Charities. “Working for Catholic Charities is a bonus to my sobriety,” Maria says. “These people gave me a second chance at life and taught me how to respect myself and how to become a productive member of society.”

Today Maria is enrolled in college and is one semester away from entering nursing school. She would eventually like to become a detox nurse at the Omaha Campus for Hope.  “Catholic Charities taught me to spread my wings and dream big,” Maria says. “I wake up every morning and I ask God who I can help today. It’s not about me anymore; it’s about what I can give each day.

“I don’t know where I would be today without Catholic Charities, it’s a miracle,” Maria says. “Catholic Charities really helps the community and for that, I am grateful.
