St. Francis Manor and The Vero Beach Opera
Fort Pierce - Friday October 28, 2022: This week on In Focus with IRSC Public Media we speak with Bonnie Matz, the Executive Director of St. Francis Manor in Vero Beach and Linda Monaldi, the Communications and Development Coordinator for the Manor.
St. Francis Manor provides affordable housing for seniors over the age of 62 and you may be surprised that in Vero Beach the need is great and the waiting list for an apartment at the Manor is more than a year.
They’ll tell us about that need and the big fundraiser they’ve planned on November 12 to help ease it.

The Vero Beach Opera has developed a national and international reputation with annual productions that have drawn on top talent from the Metropolitan Opera in New York and elsewhere.
