While most of us were enjoying Easter with family and friends, volunteers from St. Margaret’s brought Easter to St. Francis House. Food, fellowship, and the sharing of God’s love made Easter a day of Resurrection in every sense of the word!
That’s exactly what our friends from Hot Springs Village did when they brought lots of food and friendship for our Veterans one Thursday evening. These wonderful folks come up so often they’re simply a part of the Francis House family. As always, everyone loves seeing family!
The weather’s warm, flowers are blooming and everyone is welcoming spring. But nowhere was there more spring warmth and sunny smiles than at Christ Church as the Daughters of the King and the Men’s Group served dinner for the St. Francis House Veterans. Delicious food, lovely piano music and great company! Thank you to all who helped make this evening possible!
The lovely ladies of Kappa Epsilon Psi Military Sorority continue to serve.It’s hard to believe how much fun they can have sorting and hanging clothes for the clothing room. Thank you ladies for all you do!
Thank you to all who cooked and served at the recent Veterans’ dinner at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church. As you can see, it was a great time!

The youth group at Christ Church recently gave up a Sunday afternoon to volunteer at St. Francis House. In addition to learning about the ministries at St. Francis House, they sorted clothes, organized books, matched shoes and helped straighten and restock the clothing room. Thank you Christ Church EYC!
Last week, our friends at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church provided a wonderful evening of Arkansas hospitality for our veterans. Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy plus casseroles and delicious desserts served with live music and lots of laughter and friendship made for a great evening!
