Let’s Go for a Ride!

It looks like Santa has helpers in Little Rock. Look what Recycle Bikes for Kids brought to St. Francis House!

Thank you Hot Springs Village VFW!

Everyone loves a good sub sandwich and our Veterans are no exception! The Hot Springs Village VFW treated our Veterans to a yummy Subway lunch and brought gifts for our newest and youngest residents!

Thank you St. Luke’s!

The folks at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church have long been huge supporters of St. Francis House. Here they are playing Santa’s elves for our Veterans in the Re-Entry program. Thank you St. Luke’s for all you do!

We Love Making New Friends!

Last Thursday evening our new friends at St. James United Methodist Church welcomed St. Francis House Veterans with friendly faces, great food and Christmas gift bags! Thank you so much St. James!

Santa’s Helpers Needed!

John and Lydia are caring for eight beautiful grandchildren ages ten to three years old. Lydia is on Social Security Disability; John does handyman work and runs a small lawn service. This year they turned to St. Francis House to help make the grandchildren’s Christmas special.
Every Christmas St. Francis House provides food and gifts to over a hundred local families. While many families have been helped through our angel trees, this year we have twenty large families like John and Lydia who have not been sponsored. Can you or your group help? Please call St. Francis House, 501-664-5036, and ask for Phyllis Jones, if you would like to play Santa this year!

Dinner With New Friends!

Thursday night St. Francis House Veterans were treated to a delightful dinner and entertainment at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Jacksonville. It was our first chance to spend time at St. Stephen’s and it was truly a wonderful evening. The Veterans received beautiful scarfs made by a parishioner and rosaries made by Father Jim. To cap off the evening Father Jim presented our Director of the Veterans Re-Entry Program, Ken Mace, with a monetary donation from the church! Thank you so much, St. Stephen’s!

Packing Meals Can Be So Much Fun!

For Veterans Day, the Windstream Little Rock office gathered to celebrate and recognize the beauty of this country, the freedoms we enjoy daily, and the men and women who have fought for the safety of all.

They bonded through song, dance, and hard work to pack meals and show gratitude for Veterans having difficulties re-entering society. Windstream partnered with The Pack Shack and prepared over 155,000 meals packed in 6 of their largest Windstream offices. The meals from this fun-packed event were donated to the Veterans Re-entry program here at St. Francis House.

Thank you so much for helping our Veterans!

Thanksgiving Started Early!

Thanksgiving started early for the Veterans at St. Francis House. Our friends from the 4th Order Knights of Columbus and the VFW in Hot Springs Village brought a full Thanksgiving feast to start the celebrations. Thank you all for your continued support of St. Francis House!

Families Helping Families

Families from St. Mark’s Episcopal Church put together 100 Thanksgiving baskets for those in need at St. Francis House. Thank you for all your help!
