Little Rock, AR (June 29, 2020) – After almost four months of social distancing and sheltering in place, the children, teenagers and families in our care at Methodist Family Health are in need of encouragement and human connection. If you or your kids are looking for a meaningful way to help others during this pandemic, you can make a connection with a child or teenager who is struggling with psychiatric, behavioral, emotional or spiritual issues and become a pen and prayer pal.
