Christianity Today reports on River City Ministry in North Little Rock, Ark.:

RCM, which grew out of a local Church of Christ in 1989, provides many services found at most shelters: showers, hot meals six days a week, laundry, medical attention, and help finding housing, as well as case management, mail services, rehab referrals, and life and job skills training—”most anything a person would need to get started back in life,” says Anthony Wood, 52, who holds a Doctorate of Ministry from Harding School of Theology and co-authored Up Close and Personal: Embracing the Poor. This is all part of a holistic effort to offer immediate help as well as long-term transformation for Little Rock’s homeless population.

    I have followed this work since its inception. I have seen it grow and make a difference in many lives, including those who have been the servants. Churches of Christ need to be more involved in this type of outreach. -Don House,
