Holiday Shop Volunteers Needed

Posted by: Becca Smith Hill

On December 9th, we will hold the 2nd Annual Holiday Shop for the residents of St. Lawrence Place. Members of local churches, numerous organizations, local shops, and individuals will come together to ensure Christmas is as special for the families of SLP as it for yours.

While all of our adults are working, the extra expense of gifts, meals, and extras at the holidays can be a burden for them.

Annamaria’s Success Story

Posted by: Ashley Harp

Ms. Annamaria Brown came to St. Lawrence Place in January of 2012.  During the initial interview with Ms. Brown, I could tell that she was very unsure of herself and had a self-defeating way of thinking and approaching the things she wanted to accomplish.  I could also tell that she had all the potential in the world to do anything that she wanted to do if she could just see it in herself.
