Jon's Story  

Jon's Story

After they become homeless, young Jon and his family found their way to St. Anthony Family Shelter. His father Dave endured three heart surgeries, and the family was in debt. At first you could see Jon was leary and scared, but as he spent time with staff at St. Anthony Family Shelter and child counselors at Cana Counseling he slowly became more trusting and lively.

 

He liked to play fireman, putting out fires and saving people and pets.

 

Jon loved spending time with Grandma Martha, the Foster Grandparent in the shelter's playroom. "Grandma Martha reads to me and helps tie my shoes," Jon told the shelter supervisor, Ann.

 

He did not look forward to wearing his brother's hand me downs for the winter, and though he dreamed of a fire engine for Christmas staff heard him ask his Mom if Santa would find him at St. Anthony's.

 

Jon's parents worked with case managers at Catholic charities to pay down debt and to find a new home.

 

And Jon's young dreams started to come true...
