About

What We Do

Vera Lloyd Presbyterian Family Services has a mission of sharing Christ’s healing love with children, youth and families in crisis. Dedicated staff carry out this mission every day through comprehensive services available to youth who live at the agency’s children’s home in Monticello, Arkansas. The agency vision is to be the recognized model for transforming and empowering children, youth and families. 

For many youth, their time at Vera Lloyd is the only stable family environment they have experienced. In one example, a 15-year-old girl who had been exposed to and even used drugs came to Vera Lloyd and earned the best grades of her life at the on-campus school. She is no longer using drugs, has reunited with her parents and is now a college student. Megan, one of our alums, lived at Vera Lloyd for six months when she was 14 years old. She says: “I feel so happy that I got the chance to be a part of a wonderful place called Vera Lloyd. It helped me value my family and my future.”

Vera Lloyd contracts with the State of Arkansas to provide a safe place for youth in need through residential living, therapeutic group home, emergency shelter and respite care programs.

The agency is the only Presbyterian children’s home in Arkansas and northern Louisiana. It is accredited through the Council on Accreditation and maintains a commitment to excellence through its Continuous Quality Improvement Program. It is one of the first child care facilities in the state to use the Texas Christian University Institute of Child Development Trust-based Relational Intervention model of care, which incorporates recent neuroscience research to help children heal from trauma.
Every year, we improve the lives of close to 200 boys and girls, ages six to 21, from all areas of Arkansas.
