LUPUS FOUNDATION OF ARKANSAS, INC.

LUPUS FOUNDATION OF ARKANSAS, INC.

The year 2014 is almost over and we have had a busy year.  Just a reminder about #GivingTuesday.  This year it falls on Tuesday, December 2, 2014.  Lupus patients, please help and support the cause of lupus.  We have worked since October 1993 so very hard as volunteers and I am happy to say that we have made many accomplishments.  People are finally taking this cruel complex disease of lupus serious.  Research in Little Rock was a big milestone.  Although the research did not work, we are praying that will not be the end of lupus research in Arkansas.  The first medication in over 50 years for lupus was approved  by FDA March 2009 and lupus has been around for many years.  It is difficult for me to believe that lupus patients only had aspirin for the excruiating pain they had to endure, but that is true.

Bethlehem House has as its mission to improve the life situations of the homeless and nearly homeless in the community. In addition to offering a home for the homeless, the shelter provides an evening meal daily and operates a food pantry to serve the needs of those who do not have adequate resources for food.

“Talking about ‘The Hungry’ in our community is easy,” said Judi Lively. “But it’s hard to look a person in the eye and say there is no food today and we can’t help your family,” “This occurs more often at the shelter than most people would like to believe.”

Inter-Faith and Partners Disaster Recovery Alliance (IPDRA) is made up of several faith-based and voluntary organizations that are working together to secure volunteers, material resources, and funding to meet the needs of others living in Faulkner County and beyond.
