Getting Them to a New Start

We don’t always think of transportation when we think of emergency social services, but when John and Tina’s car broke down in Little Rock with their one-year-old daughter in tow, they needed help. A new job and the chance for a new and better life was waiting for them in North Carolina, but without help, they had no way to get there. That’s when the local community came together. Multiple churches stepped in to get their car fixed quickly and cover the cost, and St. Francis House provided vouchers for gasoline to speed them on their way. Safely in North Carolina, with a job and place to live, your dollars helped this family get a new start!
