On this edition of What’sUpNewp Radio on AM 1540 WADK Newport, we hear (and learn) all about  Lucy Hearth and hear about their upcoming 7th Annual Fall for Lucy’s Hearth., that will take place at the International Tennis Hall Of Fame on October 25th.

Lucy’s Hearth is a 24-hour emergency and transitional shelter for families and their children who are homeless due to economic hardship, family crisis, divorce, eviction, and a severe shortage of safe, affordable housing.  The primary goal is to foster independence and help the residents gain the life skills necessary to prevent future homelessness.

Mark Gorman, Vice Chair of the Board of Directors for Lucy’s Hearth, and Jennifer Barrera, Executive Director of Lucy’s Hearth, were my guests.
