Salvation NWA Hosts Spring Shelter Tours & More

March 14, 2018

This spring The Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas invites you to get an inside look at our shelters and services as part of our 2018 Spring Tour Series. In addition to providing a tour of our facilities, which currently hosts an average of 60 people per night, you’ll also hear from community leaders who are helping address homelessness and fight food insecurity in Northwest Arkansas.

Our spring tour series begin on Thursday, March 15 at the Fayetteville Shelter, and Thursday, March 22 at the Bentonville Shelter. As part of this tour, Dr. Kevin Fitzpatrick from the University of Arkansas will present information about the state of homelessness in Northwest Arkansas. Dr. Fitzpatrick is the director of The Community and Family Institute (CFI) in the Fulbright College of Arts and Science for the University of Arkansas. This group researches information related to homelessness and food insecurity in our community.

Anyone in the community is welcome to attend these free events. Tours will take place from 12:00 to 1:00 PM on March 15 and March 22, light snacks will be provided. Our spring tour series continues April 19 and 26; and May 17 and 24, 2018.
