Supporting the Harris Family through Community Partnership with CARTI and Goodness Village!

For years, Charles Harris was treated by a dermatologist in De Queen for various skin conditions, including skin cancer. Charles was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, and when the cancer progressed to his pituitary gland he was referred to CARTI in Little Rock for further treatment.

Initially, Charles and his family stayed in a local hotel, but that changed when they learned about Goodness Village. Charles recalls, “CARTI and Goodness Village were more than I expected. It was a surprise and a blessing for us and people like us who live so far away to have that care.”

Thanks to CARTI’s sponsorship of an apartment, the Harris family never received a bill for their stay at Goodness Village. This support lifted a financial burden off their shoulders, allowing them to focus on Charles’s treatment and recovery.

Charles shared that the visits from staff and volunteers brought him joy and comfort during his stay. “They brought us gift baskets, a quilt, a prayer book, and other inspirational items. The people were super nice. We couldn’t be more blessed with the care we received in Little Rock”. 

Charles Harris’s story is a testament to the power of community partnerships and how they impact our guests. Thank you CARTI for your support and partnership with Goodness Village. Learn more about how to Adopt-an-Apartment
