Jerry Jackson of the Special Grant Committee for The Rotary Club of Heber Springs was honored to present a "Lillian Swartz Pearce Grant" to The Freedom Way Ministry on April 20th.  Rotary's Special Grant Committee had determined that The Freedom Way Ministry would be one of the local non-profit organizations to receive a portion of the funds recently bequeathed to the Rotary Club through the Estate of Lillian Swartz Pearce.

Freedom Way, a Multi-Denominational Christian Ministry, was formed over 14 years ago, and is a mission of The First Baptist Church in Heber Springs.  But, like so many non-profits, its existence is unknown to many local residents.  Located at 4th and Spring Street, Freedom Way provides a welcoming, spiritual environment for the homeless, for inmates, ex-offenders, their families, and those in the prison of addiction.  Services are held on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, offering help to individuals seeking to integrate back into society, learn social skills and become a productive part of the community.  Chaplain Lloyd Blanton spoke of the great need for increased living quarters at the Ministry's "Hill of Hope", which is their homeless mission, located at 502 Heber Springs Road West.  He stated that all funds received from Rotary's Special Grant would be used to provide more living facilities at their "Hill of Hope".
Further information on volunteering at, or making tax deductible contributions to The Freedom Way Ministry is available by calling 501-362-6875, or contact them by mail at P.O. Box 152, Tumbling Shoals, AR 72581.  You may also view the website at   Shown accepting the grant from Rotarian Jerry Jackson, on behalf of Freedom Way were (left to right) James Anderton, Director and Property Manager, Chaplain Lloyd Blanton, and their Celebrate Recovery (CR) Pastor, Michael Butters.
