Poverty in the United States

Children growing up in Little Rock, Arkansas, face challenges we may not think about in other parts of the country. Children with nowhere to go after school are at risk of falling into bad behaviors and dropping out, health care gaps mean easily preventable illnesses push kids further behind, and the struggles of getting post high-school education can drain hope out of even the most optimistic.

That is why we focus on providing programs and camps to give kids a safe place to learn and have fun. We provide access to the health services they need and specially designed youth programs to help equip them with the skills they need to achieve their dreams.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.
