As soon as Candy Key learned about Brian Massey’s Houses for Healing in Abilene, she knew that was the answer.

The ministry provides free lodging, plus personal care, in one of four tiny houses on North Hickory Street for patients from surrounding areas who are undergoing long-term medical treatment in Abilene or for the families of those patients.

That sounded like a perfect place for Key, owner of ETC Knitting Studio in Throckmorton and a member of First United Methodist Church there to get involved.
