Tell us about your organization: The Northwest Arkansas Children's Shelter is a private, nonprofit organization that provides 24-hour emergency residential care to children who are victims of family violence, neglect and physical and sexual abuse. The Children's Shelter is designed to meet the needs of these children by providing them with a safe and loving environment to reduce the trauma they have experienced through nurturing and support. We are staffed and ready, day and night, to take in and care for children in crisis. Children stay for up to 45 days before being placed in another foster-care setting or returning to their families.
