WE MEET OUR CLIENTS WHERE THEY ARE WITH A SPIRIT OF COMPASSION
Since 7hills was founded in 2001, it has been our philosophy to develop programs to meet the changing and unique characteristics of the homeless and impoverished in Northwest Arkansas. Despite our community’s generous spirit and economic blessings, homelessness has continued to grow in Benton and Washington Counties from 1,170 homeless men, women, and children in 2007 to 2,951 in 2017. All three of our programs have been developed using evidence-based best practice programming models from across the country and around the world that have been modified to meet our community’s distinctive needs. Our ultimate goal is to develop a continuum of services and housing programs that will allow us to assist all clients/families, no matter their individual challenges and life circumstances.
