CEF's Guardian Angel Fund provided an emergency scholarship this week that will keep a CEF student in his school after both of his parents lost their jobs, causing them to fall behind in their tuition payments. His father was injured earlier this year and has been unable to work since his injury. His mother's company eliminated her position; she is looking for a new position. She also has developed some health issues that will require surgery and a long recovery period.

My Catholic faith has always been a part of my life. I was blessed enough to attend Catholic schools throughout my education, even through college at Benedictine. However, I’m not sure I appreciated it nearly as much as the children that benefit from the Catholic Education Foundation scholarships and CEF Futures Guardian Angel Fund. The fire in their hearts for Catholic schools is practically palpable and truly inspiring!

CEF's Guardian Angel Fund recently helped two siblings remain in the CEF school they have attended since preschool after an injury kept their father out of work for a year. Due to medical issues, their mother has been unable to work consistently, and without the father's income the family was unable to afford their tuition payments. They sold their home near the school and moved to another home further away in an effort to reduce their expenses, but were unable to keep up with the housing costs and moved in with a relative.

CEF's Guardian Angel Fund recently provided scholarship assistance for an 8th grade student who has had significant health issues, resulting in surgery, hospitalization and large medical expenses. Shortly after the student's surgery, her mother became seriously ill and was unable to work. The father, who had been working 2 jobs, had to reduce his work hours to help care for his wife and daughter. As a result of the medical expenses and decreased income, the family was unable to pay the daughter's tuition.
