Your Support in Action: Martin Family Overcomes Hardships with the Help of Our Community

"Thank you all for helping me during this rough patch in my life."

Jackson Martin, a devoted 33-year-old father of three, faced immense challenges despite earning an associate degree in refrigeration mechanics and securing a job with a local HVAC company.

With sole custody of his children and the added responsibility of caring for his ailing mother, financial strains were constant. The lack of child support payments, coupled with his mother’s mounting medical bills, pushed him to the brink. Additionally, his car was on the verge of collapse, exacerbating his stress.

In desperate need of assistance, Jackson reached out to the Holy Family parish conference in Galveston. Through our Underserved Communities Initiative, he received vital car repairs, easing a significant burden. Jackson’s gratitude was palpable as he expressed, “Thank you all for helping me during this rough patch in my life.”
