74-year-old Emma values her independence. She is retired and lives by herself in Pine Bluff. Her Social Security pays her rent, but sometimes she needs help with other things. As the temperatures dropped, she struggled to pay her gas bill and eventually received a cut-off notice. Thanks to our generous donors, St. Francis House was able to pay her gas bill and keep the heat on. We are safe and warm at St. Francis House, and we’re so glad that now Emma is too!
