According to the 2017 NWA Homeless Census provided by the University of Arkansas, there are over 2900 homeless people in Northwest Arkansas, over half of which are children. Over half of all homeless persons counted in Benton and Washington counties were less than 18 years of age.
House of Hope Rescue Mission is a Day Center for the needy and homeless in downtown Springdale. We’re open Wednesday and Fridays from 9-2. We serve a hot meal on those 2 days, have a food pantry, clothing room, showers, laundry facilities, Bible Studies, and a Licensed Social Worker to help with job-placement, social services, benefits, housing or any other issues.
We need some extra volunteer help for the summer! We would love to have some teenagers who are out for the summer and some college students to help! On the job training provided! Just come to 505 E Emma in Springdale and we’ll put you to work! We promise it will be rewarding. We can write a letter regarding volunteer hours if needed. Adults are welcome, too! We also need cooks. It takes about 16-18 volunteers each day we’re open. We usually have 60-150 clients. Won’t you consider helping us out?
