Editor's note: Bill Hockenberger is program manager for Catholic Charities St. Anthony Residence. He has worked at St. Anthony Residence for 16 years. Founded in 1869, Catholic Charities annually serves 37,000 people regardless of faith and is fully accredited by the Council on Accreditation. Catholic Charities is a member of Catholic Charities USA and was honored by the Charities Review Council. More information about Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis can be found at cctwincities.org.
