Shelter Tours: A fall learning series

August 10, 2017

Dear Community,

Please consider joining us for our fall series: Shelter Tours.

We will be hosting several meet and greet tours this fall to share about homelessness in our community and The Salvation Army’s work to aid those in need.

A Few Facts:

  • As of 2017, there are approximately 2,951 homeless in Northwest Arkansas. Over HALF of that number is represented by children in K-12th grades.++
  • The homeless population in NWA has increased by 152% since 2007, whereas, the general population has only grown by 12%.++
  • In 2016, we provided over 24,217 nights of shelter between our two Emergency Shelters.
  • Additionally, we provided 93,590 meals to men, women, and children who experienced food insecurity.

++Statistics from the 2017 Point-In-Time survey conducted in Northwest Arkansas.

Join us on one of our shelter tours this fall to learn more, ask questions, and better understand the experience of the homeless in Northwest Arkansas. RSVP is not required.
