In this end-of-season interview, The New York Times spotlights Stephanie Harrill, Social Worker at Catholic Charities Guild for the Blind, whose extraordinary work has helped transform lives.
“People hear the word charity and they think of a hand out,” she says. “Our services are a hand up.”
By combining the myriad of services Catholic Charities offers with publicity The New York Times Neediest Cases campaign provides, Ms. Harrill helps blind, homeless, unemployed and often spiritually defeated men and women find work, housing and meaning in their lives.
“I think The New York Times Neediest Cases campaign is fantastic,” Ms Harrill adds. “For particular clients it can bring opportunities to them that they never knew possible.”
