We are a faith-based nonprofit that provides assistance to families and individuals living in western and southern Washington county. Based in Prairie Grove, Ark., we’ve been servicing these individuals since 1993.

In 2013, our food pantry, resale shop and assistance program provided an estimated value of $425,000 of total assistance to 2,325 families and 6,600 individuals. Our vision is to continue to be a resource for low to no income families and individuals in Northwest Arkansas, providing hope, peace and confidence through faith.

  • FOOD PANTRY – Our Food Pantry serves an average of 156 families or 438 individuals per month. The majority of our food is purchased from the NWA Food Bank. We rely on the Food Bank for our meat, bread, eggs and most of our canned goods. The remaining food is purchased through Allens Canning, ALDI and Sam’s Club or provided by donations from churches, banks, individuals and our local Harp’s store. The third Saturday of each month we provide food to senior citizens (ages 65+) who live on low fixed incomes or no income at all.
  • RESALE SHOP – Our resale shop is open to the general public and prices range from $.25 – $3. Items include adult and children clothing, shoes, books, toys, small appliances, linens, some furniture and electronics. Proceeds from the resale shop provide the primary funding for our assistance programs.
  • ASSISTANCE PROGRAM – Our program provides qualifying families and individuals with food, clothing, utilities (gas, water, electric), prescription medication, gasoline, medical equipment and supplies. Individuals and families can participate in the program four times a year.
