Building Partnerships, Building Hope



Over the past few months we have continued to build partnerships with others. Rebuilding Together of Northwest Arkansas which covers Benton and Washington Counties and Habitat for Humanity of Washington County are both likeminded groups that have similar programs with varying guidelines. Habitat has a very nice reuse store where we can purchase materials at a discounted price and we have already received a referral for assistance from Rebuilding Together for a family that didn't fit into their guidelines. We also received a $40,000.00 grant from the Wal-Mart Foundation specifically for families in Washington and Benton Counties. There is strength in partnerships. Together we can give hope to those who had none.
