Every year, Vera Lloyd Presbyterian Family Services cares for approximately 150 youths from all over Arkansas.


Vera Lloyd Presbyterian Family Services has a mission of sharing Christ’s healing love with children, youth and families. Our children’s home in Monticello has been a safe and loving home for youth since it opened in 1923. Today, we are home to youth, ages 6 to 21, in foster care or boys who have committed misdemeanors. Our vision is to be the model of excellence for transforming and empowering children, youth and families. Our core values are love, trust, family, respect and empowerment. The agency is accredited by the Council on Accreditation.


• Your gift of $200 will provide a day of care for one youth as well as counseling, academic assistance, extracurricular activities and preparation for life after graduation.

• Your gift of $500 will allow a youth a full year of employment coaching through our on-campus work program where they learn interview and job skills as well as practicing financial literacy.

• Your gift of $1,000 provides one month of clothing and medical care for boys and girls who often arrive at Vera Lloyd with only the clothes on their backs.
