Wish #19 - $20 Helps Provide A Shelter Of Hope To At-Risk Children 

Diocese of Fresno, California

In the Diocese of Fresno, there are more incarcerated people than any diocese in the world. Here, area children urgently need a place where they can escape the gangs, violence, and drugs rampant on many streets. Your donation helps the local Church provide a sanctuary of hope, where children can find comfort and a new direction in their Catholic faith.
