Megan Hearn, age 15, was one of 672 St. Clair County students identified as homeless in the past school year. Moving in with her sister, Jessie Taylor, was a big change, but the two were struggling. Almost by accident, Jessie called RESA to see if it could help where other agencies couldn't. The story of what she found is a heart-warming tale of two determined young women who are making a home together.
Children's books are arriving at the homes of youngsters from newborns through age 5 across St. Clair County. The books come at no cost to the family. RESA and the United Way of St. Clair County are partners in underwriting locally Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program.
