91-year-old veteran gets help finding a new home
Mr. La Rue Stallworth
One of our members, Audrey Quinn, helped her 91-year old grandfather, Mr. LaRue Stallworth, with finding some much needed resources. Mr. Stallworth was in need of repairs to his home. Once the repairs were assessed it was determined that they were beyond repair. WIth that in mind, Ms. Quinn went to work seeking resources to help her grandfather who served in the United States Army. Mr. Stallworth is an army veteran who fought in the Korean War. The Korean War was fought between 1950 and 1953 under President Harry S. Truman. Not only did Mr. Stallworth serve his country, but he also cares for his son with special needs. In order to keep Mr. LaRue and his son from becoming homeless something had to be done immediately. There were many agencies willing to help veterans but finding them was not the easiest task. After several months and many phone calls, Mr. Stallworth and his son now have a new home. We would like to thank all of those involved in helping our veterans, especially Mr. LaRue Stallworth who has a new home in which he can be proud. Special thanks to the following non-profits: Vettes4Vets and Habitat for Humanity.
The Bible calls us to serve one another in love in Galatians 5:13 which says, "For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don't use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love."
