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.

Right here I developed a concern for other people and learned to accept love as well as give it. In this very place, a desire was born in me to pass on the message that had made my life glad....
