The Kitchen Table

At mid-morning on a recent Thursday, the kitchen was a flurry of activity as the chef and her assistants prepared the luncheon fare for that day.

Ham and cheese sliders, with potato wedges and fried pickles, for the main course, and homemade pudding for dessert.

Yum! And these sliders weren't just ham and cheese slapped on any old bun; they were the loving creation of Bertha Wherry, the lead chef for the day. She put her twist on a standard recipe to make it special.

Peter and Paul Community Services debuts safe haven for chronically homeless

Longtime friends Curesa Atkins, left, and Audrey Brown now live across the hallway from each other at Garfield Place Apartments, Peter and Paul Community Services’ new safe haven for chronically homeless individuals in the Benton Park West neighborhood of St. Louis.

This year, Curesa Atkins is going to have one of the best Christmases she's experienced in a long time.

In October, Atkins moved into Garfield Place Apartments, Peter and Paul Community Services' safe haven for chronically homeless individuals, that opened this fall. In the past few weeks, she's been busy decorating her place for Christmas. In the corner, a tree is adorned with silver and red tinsel, and a few gifts are underneath the tree, waiting for their recipients. Her table is set with gleaming holiday china and matching placemats.
