Dr. James Smiley is a man with many titles. This includes doctor, husband, and pastor. But this successful man was once homeless.

James came over to St. Patrick Center about 2 years ago as a man living with homelessness. He explained that addiction and mental health issues had risen in his life.

St. Patrick Center not only housed him, but they helped him discover something he had never discovered before. His mental health issues came to light, and it all started to make sense to him. They helped him get a job, he reunited with his family, and he turned his life around.

Catholic Charities of St. Louis has 8 organizations and one cause: to build a stronger community. You can learn more at CCSTL.org.
