“Without the help of Catholic Charities, Mom and Dad would not be able to stay in their own home. Tamara’s help with cleaning, laundry, baking, etc. is a real blessing. Without her, I could not possibly take care of everything they need by myself. Mom and Dad have felt very comfortable with her Companions, it’s like they’ve become part of our family.” - Dan
