To serve with our community for the benefit of the under-resourced, vulnerable, and exploited in Northwest Arkansas.
The 2017 Community and Family Institute Homeless Report estimates there are approximately 2,951 homeless persons in Washington & Benton counties (this is a 20% increase since 2015).
We are focusing on Unsheltered Homeless People (account for 15% of the homeless population) through our "New Beginnings Community" initiative that is currently under development.
Through our Community Care initiatives we are able to meet immediate needs that can prevent people from slipping further into poverty.
Initiatives like Laundry Love, 3 Bags in 2 Days, and Art in Park are intended to facilitate a relational approach to meeting immediate needs while connecting with appropriate services to break cycles of vulnerability in our community.
