Emily Parker is one of the newest volunteers at the Fort Smith Family Room! Emily first heard about the Family by working with her high school sorority DBS. She says what keeps her interested is "the acknowledgement [that] a child being sick affects the whole family. Having the family close to their child is very important." Her responsibilities include light housekeeping, giving tours, registering gifts, helping with special needs, and more. She says she loves her experience with RMHC of Arkoma. "Everyone that works here is so nice and cares so much about the families."
