When she could no longer work, a Northeast Philadelphia senior citizen became a prisoner in her own home, unable to participate in parish or community life.

Her fellow parishioners at St. Katherine of Siena connected her with Catholic Housing and Community Services (CHCS), which provides affordable housing to over 260 seniors, along with programming and support for over 1,100 elderly men and women each year.

Thanks to the support of her parish and CHCS, she found a new home at St. John Neumann Place II, one of five affordable senior residences offered by CHCS.
