Added: 2016-11-12 by another contributor
Juanita Nellos, Kathy Preonas and Athena Christodoulou visited with the director at St. Bonaventure Catholic Charities in Thoreau, NM on September 22, 2016. Our purpose was to get a better understanding who they serve and what other organizations are helping them, as well as get an idea of what they really need. St. Bonaventure co-ordinates the services to the125 to 150 families living on the Eastern Navajo Reservation, which include about 200 children, 40 of whom are preschoolers. This is a pretty primitive 35 square miles of the Reservation, with dwellings several miles apart.
