Lisa Johnston | email@example.com | Twitter: @aeternusphoto St. John Neumann Apartments is an affordable housing senior apartment complex operated by Cardinal Ritter Senior Services (CRSS), an agency of Catholic Charities and the Archdiocese of St. Louis. The Jennings apartment building is across the street from the command center set up by MO. Highway Patrol and St. Louis police during the Ferguson unrest. Cindy Asher is the manager of the building and is very protective of her residents. At night they have been closing up the blinds because the foot traffic, shouting, tire squealing and emergency sirens have been affecting the residents sense of peace. The staff, who have been challenged in getting to and from work, are doing their best to help the residents feel safe and keep their minds occupied. Sister Suzanne Wesley, CSJ said, "I can't say enough about our staff." She reported that we are here when fear overwhelms them and they just need to talk. Resident Willie Mae Keel, 94, has to watch her blood sugar so every early afternoon Asher brings her a tootsie roll treat. Keel was so thankful to have such a good place to live where she feels so happy. Maintenance man Andre Cross also takes care of the residents. His smile and affability put everyone at ease.
