Local Farmer Selects Vera Lloyd

Brian Smith, a farmer from Drew County, was selected as the America’s Farmers Grow Communities winner by a random drawing from the Monsanto Fund. This program allows farmers the chance to win $2,500 for their favorite non-profit community organization. It gives them an opportunity to help build the communities in which they live and work. This year, winning farmers from counties that were declared natural disaster areas by the U.S.D.A. were able to direct an additional $2,500 donation to a non-profit organization to address community needs brought on by the drought. Vera Lloyd was chosen to receive the additional $2,500 donation by Mr. Smith. Arkansas

Baptist Children’s Home was also a recipient from the Monsanto Fund. The gift will be used to support the ongoing needs of our youth who live in the Transitional Living Program. On behalf of Vera Lloyd, we wish to thank Mr. Smith for directing this gift to us. We also wish to thank Monsanto and their program which gives back to our communities both locally and nationwide.



A Message from Lyn Fourteen months ago, Vera Lloyd took a leap of faith, and without funding from the Lyn Whaley, CEO state, opened a transitions program for older boys on the campus. The venture was made possible by a magnanimous gift from the estate of Stephen Harrow and Katherine Smith of Little Rock. The program that prepares youth for the next step toward independence has produced the first successful “graduate” from the program. Frank Pitts was one of the original participants, moving from the residential program into the transitions home after graduating from Monticello High School. Frank chose to stay at Vera Lloyd in order to benefit from the help and

guidance offered in the program. Staffed by coordinators, Deverick and Clare Franklin, the transitions program includes classes in cooking, time management, goal setting, financial decision-making and sex education. Frank learned to drive and acquired a driver’s license. Frank’s goal was a military career, and Vera Lloyd staff helped him through the process of joining the Private Frank Pitts Marines. In January, Deverick and Clare were there to cheer when Frank completed Marine Basic Training at the base in San Diego. He is now “living his dream,” and Frank’s Vera Lloyd Home family is very proud of him. Lyn Whaley

Staff Spotlight

Regina Bridges, Administrative Assistant

Regina Bridges has worked for Vera Lloyd since September 2009 as the Administrative Assistant/Board Liaison. A native of Arkansas, she was born and raised in Conway. She began Hendrix with the intentions of becoming a physician and moved on to U.C.A. for a degree in Mass Communications because, “let’s face it, it’s not as hard.” Regina became a Presbyterian in 2001 joining First Presbyterian Church in Conway, AR where Rev. Rebecca Spooner was Associate Pastor. Through Rebecca, Regina learned about Vera Lloyd, its mission and the mission of the Laurence E. Schmidt Center. Her husband, Joshua, is the Commissioned Ruling Elder for the First Presbyterian Church in Beebe. They currently reside in El Paso, AR, with their two children, Ethan, 12, and Suzanne, 10.

2012 Annual Report The Mission of Vera Lloyd Presbyterian Home & Family Services is to share Christ’s healing love with children, youth and families in crisis.

A YEAR IN REVIEW Vera Lloyd Presbyterian Home & Family Services had an exciting year in 2012. As donors, you were instrumental in our ability to continue to improve and provide programs for the youth we serve. If we could make a highlight reel for 2012, it would contain the following: • Girl’s Transition Home opened • First Lady Ginger Beebe visited campus • Successful Events on Campus - Pines Presbytery Meeting, Pink Hat Day and Turkey Trot exposed more people to the campus and our programs • U.S. and Arkansas flags proudly fly on our campus • The Acree Building was remodeled and is now the Acree Pavilion The newly renovated Acree Pavilion. • Vera Lloyd seeks accreditation • Volunteers built the low-ropes course on campus, beds and decks • The Schmidt Center continued its growth • Our school program saw improvements • Churches in both Presbyteries continue to donate their time, talents and funds to further our mission Added to these highlights, in 2012 we served 228 youth, 30 more than the previous year. Thank you for continuing to be a very important part of our ability to care for all of the youth who call Vera Lloyd home.

A Note From a Student

The following was written by one of our students in the on-campus school. The assignment given was to write a note about how Vera Lloyd has affected their life:

Our on-campus school continues to help our children and youth improve their education.

“Since I have been at Vera Lloyd my life has gotten a lot better. Before, I was in a foster home and went to public school. I didn’t do great in school. Now, Vera Lloyd is helping me get my GED. Vera Lloyd is helping me get my future on the right track. They are going to help me get into college when I finish getting my GED.” “Vera Lloyd has honestly changed me. I look at things from a new perspective. All of this, is because Vera Lloyd has helped me. Thank you, Vera Lloyd, for helping me with my new life.” ~Destiny E.

Our Vision:

Vera Lloyd Presbyterian Home & Family Services will be the recognized model for transforming and empowering children, youth and families. For more information on the programs of Vera Lloyd, please visit our website at

Who Are The Youth We Serve? The youth we serve come from many different backgrounds and circumstances. Many have been in a multitude of foster homes and moved all over the state. They arrive often with feelings of uncertainty, confusion, distrust and of being scared and alone. Many youth in foster care are often separated from their siblings. Some have been physically and/or sexually abused. These children are referred to us by the Division of Children and Family Services. Other youth are referred from the juvenile justice system. They have been labeled “troublemakers” by many. These youth have been in minor trouble with the law, usually for skipping school, violation of curfew laws, substance abuse or mental health issues. Many arrive to our campus feeling angry, unloved, afraid of their future and have feelings of distrust for adults. The good news is that Vera Lloyd is a place where they can feel loved, safe, become stronger, learn to solve problems with words and not force, and develop life skills that will help them when they leave Vera Lloyd’s care. Together we are changing lives one-by-one. Breakdown by Gender Breakdown by Ethnicity

(Ladies, get ready, a man almost won last year!) We look forward to sharing this day with all of

Youth in the News

you. It is a wonderful day for women (and a few men) to gather from across two Presbyteries for a day of fellowship, fun and to learn about the programs so many of you support.

Volunteers Improve Pettus

Congratulations to Eliseo on obtaining his driver’s license. He lives in our Transition Home. Autumn completed her GED and is enrolled in UAM pursuing an English degree. Kyle graduated from high school and now has a full-time job in Monticello. The youth won first place in their category in the Monticello Christmas parade with their float, “Sugar Plum Fairy”.

The Pettus Home

Volunteers with Arkansas Interfaith Power & Light and Arkansas Energy Corps, which included the Creation Care Committee from Second Presbyterian, made four trips to the Pettus Home to improve the homes energy efficiency. The light bulbs were switched to energy-saving CFLs, programmable thermostats installed and cellulose insulation

was blown in the attic. The group also weather stripped areas of concern, caulked, and repaired water leaks. The entire group spent more than 25 volunteer hours working in the home. In addition to the savings from their hard work, we anticipate the utility bills in the Pettus Home will markedly improve. Vera Lloyd is thankful for all of the volunteers who worked on this project. Interested in volunteering? Contact our Campus Activities Coordinator Bonnie Hicks at (877) 353-6420.




CHURCH Christmas at Vera Lloyd was once again a huge success. Many thanks to all of the individual donors and churches who helped provide gifts for our youth. Graceminster Presbyterian Church, Monroe sponsored the “Covenant Players”, actors who use live Christmas gifts from Trinity drama as a tool for Presbyterian Church. communicating the love of God, hope and encouragement. Their groups travel throughout the world. They presented several short plays to all of our youth. Second Presbyterian Church from Little Rock continues to sponsor the Barton Home and provide a meaningful connection to the girls and staff who live there. In December, the girls joined Second Presbyterian in worship, followed by a luncheon in the Youth Building. After lunch, they were treated to the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra’s Christmas concert.

The women of Westover Hills and the Simmons’ baby shower.

The Women of Westover Hills Presbyterian Church recently held a surprise baby shower in their Fellowship Hall for Darrick and Vanessa Simmons, house parents of the Trimble Home. Their newly adopted son, Damirean, was born January 16, 2013. The church also purchased new dining room chairs for the Trimble Home. Holmes Chapel Presbyterian Church continues to mentor our youth through on-campus classes. We appreciate their congregation’s continual involvement and sharing their gifts, time and talents. First Presbyterian Church, McGehee surprised the Lewis Home with a new pool table for Christmas.

Thanks to all of our churches!

Honor and Memorial Gifts Make a Huge Impact on Services Provided When a friend or family member has a birthday, anniversary or special occasion, consider giving an Honor Gift to Vera Lloyd Presbyterian Home. An Honor Gift says that you pay tribute to that person with a special gift that supports the mission of Vera Lloyd. We will send the honoree a card with your message and no mention of the donated amount.

Consider a Memorial Gift to Vera Lloyd to express condolences to a bereaved family. A card will be sent to the family on your behalf to let them know their loved one was remembered with a lasting gift to help Vera Lloyd’s youth. These types of gifts are placed in our Endowment Fund which will help secure the future of Vera Lloyd and the youth God places in our care for years to come.

Laurence E. Schmidt Center News Greetings! On Transfiguration Sunday, the Sunday before Ash Wednesday, I heard a sermon that had an amazing impact on my life. The title of the sermon was “Co-creators of our Transformation.” The basic premise is that God is working Rev. Rebecca Spooner, LPC with us to shape us into the people God created us to be. BUT, God does require some things from us. One, God requires that we be obedient. But as Rev. Mike Vinson pointed out the root for the word obey/obedience in all of the Biblical languages means to simply “listen” or “to hear”. That in order for us to participate in what God has called us to do, we must carve out time to be still and listen. Note that when God does speak or direct, we aren’t given the full picture but just the next step. Apparently, that is all we need. Second, we must be willing to surrender. Then Mike went to meddling and stepping on toes - mine in particular. He

said that God calls us to surrender everything: our anxiety, our fears, our need to control, our judgment of others, (the list was quite long). Because if we don’t we can’t discover that what lies beyond all those distractions: the transforming power of God. This sermon has become my focus during this Lent. Life as a follower of Jesus is simple (not easy), but how often do we make it far more complicated than it needs to be. In February, the Laurence Schmidt Center was featured in 501Life magazine. The link to the article is: www.501lifemag. com. Renee Hunter did a fantastic job writing the article. Seeing the story of the Schmidt Center all over again reminded me of what can indeed happen when we simply listen and surrender. I pray God’s richest blessings on your Lenten season and always.

Lulu Williamson Society Vera Lloyd welcomes the addition of two new members, Alan and Carol Sue Wooten, Fayetteville, AR, to the Lulu Williamson Legacy Society. Alan and Carol Sue have been supporting Vera Lloyd Alan and Carol Sue Wooten in a variety of ways for several years. Carol Sue served on the board for six years and her expertise and contributions to the board were invaluable. In a recent note she shared the following: “Alan and I included Vera Lloyd in our will because we admire, appreciate and respect the outstanding work that Vera Lloyd does on behalf of children and families every day. We believe that Vera Lloyd will be serving children and families for a long, long time because of the solid foundation that is being set by the leadership of the staff and board.” The Lulu Williamson Legacy Society was formed to honor the life-long personal commitment of Mrs. Williamson to Vera Lloyd. Donors who make a planned gift to benefit Vera Lloyd are honored as members of the Lulu Williamson Society and receive a commemorative gift which recognizes their very special gift.

The Greatest Gift of All Over 93% of Americans donate to their favorite nonprofit organizations during their lifetimes, but that lifegiving support often ends at the death of the donor. In fact, only 3% of us include a charitable gift in our will or other estate plan. Imagine the impact on the nonprofits of Arkansas if more of us made this Greatest Gift of All! Vera Lloyd has recognized this wonderful potential and has created a Planned Giving Program to encourage our supporters to consider making a bequest in their will to Vera Lloyd. The Planned Giving Program at Vera Lloyd also provides interested supporters with valuable information concerning the planning of their estate. Many people do not recognize if they fail to make a will before their death, Arkansas probate courts will determine the distribution of their estate, who will be responsible for dependent children and many other serious decisions. Oddly, many people spend more time planning their summer vacations than they do planning

the distribution of the assets that they have worked a lifetime to accumulate.

Benjamin Franklin once quipped that a gift from one’s estate is the greatest, but also the easiest gift of all. He said that at the time of our death, when considering life insurance and other assets we own, we have more than at any other time in our lives, but absolutely no use for it. There are several methods you might consider in making a bequest to Vera Lloyd. The most commonly used is a specific bequest, which means that you name a specific amount to be gifted. Another method is to gift the residue or a percentage of the residue to Vera Lloyd. The residue is the remainder

of assets in your estate after all other distributions have been made. Some supporters even make a conditional bequest. A conditional bequest is only realized if certain conditions exist, such as an heir predeceasing you. Simply put, it might read that if any of your heirs who are to receive a distribution from your estate predecease you, the amount they were to receive would be gifted to Vera Lloyd. We encourage you to contact your professional advisor or contact Vera Lloyd if you would like to explore options related to your estate plan or will, and a potential gift to Vera Lloyd. Your gift can be restricted to a specific project, area, to the Endowment, or can be made unrestricted so that the Vera Lloyd Board can direct your gift to the greatest need. We appreciate your past support and your consideration of making the Greatest Gift of All. If you have any questions, please call Renee Dickins at (501) 666-8195.

For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either. - 1 Timothy 6:7
