We’re saddened to announce that over Labor Day weekend, there was a house fire at our Angels’ Arms home in Ferguson. Foster parents, Jenny and Shane Tripp, along with their three foster children, were out of town when the fire occurred and are safe from any harm. Unfortunately, there was significant fire damage to much of the house, as well as smoke damage in all areas.
Currently, the foster family is living in temporary housing while the Angels’ Arms staff are busy working through this situation. The cause of the fire is still under investigation but while we wait to learn more, we are helping to connect the family with resources that assist with immediate needs such as clothing and food.
At this time, we can’t accept any donations of household goods and furniture but as we move forward with a long term plan for the Tripp’s, we will post a list of needs and ways the community can help this wonderful family.
In the meantime, if you would like to help Angels’ Arms support the Tripp’s and the other foster families in our homes, you can make a monetary donation HERE
Thank you in advance for your concern and support.
