A Ribbon Cutting Celebration for the opening of the Curtis and Celia Massey Activity Center at The Young Homes, in Fort Smith, AR, has been set for September 25th at 10:00am. Those expected to be in attendance will include donors, representatives of Free Will Baptist Family Ministries, DCFS staff, and elected officials to include County Judges and the Sheriffs of Sebastian and Crawford County.

The Massey Activity Center will provide a Family Visiting Room and Conference Room. The building also has a large activity room where caseworkers, mentors, tutors, family members approved for visits, and guardian ad litems can meet with sibling groups or individuals as needed.  It also has washers and dryers, a clothes closet, freezers and refrigerators to store larger donations of food. The House Parents are very excited about the Activity Building as it will  help keep the homes functioning as much as possible like a normal family unit by reducing the frequent interruptions.  Our Arkansas Ministries currently care for app. 66 children, with 29 foster children at the Young Homes (all with other siblings), 25 at Maggie House, in Charleston, AR and 12 at Florence Crittenton Home, Little Rock.

Testimony

I was there for 64 day starting from January 20, 2014 as a resident in DCS custody. I did not like it that much while I was there but after I got out I realized how much better it was than alot of group homes. It is a friendlier environment with great staff. We did have fun there, more than I realized while I was there. It was not that enjoyable while I was there because I was away from my home and family by force but now since I am out, I have truly realized what it has done for me and other people. It has gotten alot of teens boys to Christ by far while I was there. I really hope people will donate more stuff there because there was not much to do but it was not all that bad.
