Continuing to Serve

Nothing beats a good sandwich on a hot day, especially when it’s shared with friends who understand what it means to serve! Thanks, Hot Springs Village VFW for a lovely and laid-back lunch!

Lending a Helping Hand

These young people from First United Methodist Church Dallas, Texas don’t hesitate to lend a helping hand – even when it’s miles away! They spent hours sorting and hanging clothes, as well as sorting and organizing books and magazines as part of their summer mission here in Little Rock. Thank you so much for choosing to lend a hand at St. Francis House. And thank you St. James UMC for hosting another awesome group of young people!

Food and Fellowship

St. Mark’s Episcopal Church served great food and even better fellowship to our Veterans. Thank you St. Mark’s for all you do to support St. Francis House!

An Evening with Friends

It’s always an evening with friends when the Hot Springs Village Knights of Columbus, VFW, American legion and Ladies Auxiliary bring dinner to St. Francis House. These dedicated volunteers come visit often, always bringing delicious food, willing hands, and beautiful smiles. This time they brought extra surprises- a flat screen TV and sound system for the veterans day room, work boots, clothes, housewares and donations from the Arkansas State organization of the American Legion and another from the Ar chapter DC PEO all to be used for veteran needs!Thank you all so much!

Mission Can Be Found Everywhere!

So often when we think of mission, we think of other places – third world countries with people who speak and perhaps look different from us. But opportunities for mission are right around the corner. The poor, hungry, ill, and hopeless are present in our own community and are present always, not just a few times a year. The young people from St. Mark’s and Christ Episcopal churches are learning that and giving their time to local ministries. St. Francis House was blessed to have you make us a part of your summer mission. Thank you for your generous spirits and hard work!

Thank You, Body of Christ Worship Center

Our heartfelt thanks to members of the Body of Christ Worship Center for their donation of non-perishables for our Social Services department. Congregation members collected needed goods for several weeks to help provide items not available through the food bank. God bless you for your generosity!

Learning to Serve

These delightful young men from Christ the King Roman Catholic Church came to help at St. Francis House as part of their community service for Confirmation. Over the next two years, they will continue to serve others as they grow and learn about their faith. Faith and Service – both are such a huge part of the Christian journey. Thank you for your hard work and you are welcome back here any time!

Celebrating Independence Day

What better way to celebrate Independence Day than with those who helped keep our country free? It was a star-spangled evening at Christ Church Episcopal complete with a color guard provided by volunteers from the Camp Robinson 39th Brigade. St. Francis House Veterans, staff and Christ Church friends gathered for music and a delicious dinner!
