About the Founding of Pajaro Valley Shelter Services.

“Dear Friends,

Newsweek Magazine gave 10 pages to a detailed description of homelessness in America in the January 2nd [1984] issue. There were plenty of stories and some telling statistics. We read it and identified with the struggles of the poor that we experience daily here at the shelter. The hard fact is that each of us can also ‘feel’ the limits of compassion. There is something in us that doesn’t want to hear any more stories of poverty, hunger and suffering. We know clearly our own limitations and inability to reach out to all. When that happens only our network with other people who care can save us from becoming cold and unfeeling in the midst of suffering. We need to nurture the ‘good Samaritan’ inside of ourselves and know there are others to support our efforts. This is our primary reason for sending you this newsletter. There are always needs in this house, but our most important link is to the network of ‘good Samaritans’ who keep compassion alive through their support of the poor.”

– Sr. Marie Veronica Wagner and Sr. Susan Olson, February 7th, 1984

Pajaro Valley Shelter Services was founded in 1983 by Sister Marie Veronica & Catholic Charities in response to the needs of women and children affected by homelessness in Watsonville.
