Stories of Hope: Maurice

Maurice

When Maurice Barry first learned of Catholic Charities Senior Aide Employment program back in the 1990’s little did he know that his dormant skills in the garden industry would be brought back to life.

Back then, being an older adult on a limited income with no job in sight, Maurice was given the opportunity to be retrained. He was assigned to a job placement that matched his talents and ultimately he was given a chance to obtain long term employment.

 

Now an eighteen year part-time employee in the maintenance department at Catholic Charities, Maurice continues to tend to our thriving flowerbeds, providing a special welcome for anyone who enters Catholic Charities seeking help, as he did some twenty years ago.
