The Neighborhood Church in Bentonville seeks to make an impact in their community and in their neighborhood everyday. And what better way to reach the neighborhood than to connect with the homeless shelter right down the street from your new building location!? That’s how we got connected to this amazing group of people-they reached out, they asked to be a part, and then they came!
“At the end of the service, we often say ‘the worship is over, but the service is not’. We want to be present in our community and to impact lives.” Cheryl and Colleen, The Neighborhood Church
The Neighborhood Church adopted one of our three family rooms at the Bentonville Shelter. All decorations, furniture, and linens were provided by them! The room truly has a whole new feel. It’s like walking into an updated apartment rather than a room an emergency shelter.
“Giving back like this makes a bigger impact than you’ll ever know. When people come in and see a nice room it calms anxiety and helps them move from a state of chaos to stability, from despair to hope.”
Danny Camarillo, The Salvation Army, Bentonville Shelter Director
