Cathy’s life is a story of resilience. Growing up in foster care since the age of two, she found herself struggling with homelessness and battling alcohol and drug addiction. But her life took a positive turn when she met Mark, her lifelong partner. Together, they made a pact to overcome their addictions and create a stable life for themselves.
With the help of Peter McVerry Trust, they received essential support, including furniture and other necessary items to start fresh in their new home. Cathy’s experience with Peter McVerry Trust was profoundly positive, introducing her to people who played a significant role in her recovery.
Today, Cathy celebrates over ten years of sobriety. She expresses deep gratitude for the chance to rebuild her life and acknowledges the crucial support she received along the way. “Really a positive experience, very nice people. Very lucky to have met the people that I’ve met in my life.”
