We believe the words written in the Gospel of Matthew “…whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” At the heart of the Compassion Center of Northwest Arkansas is a desire to help the hurting and less fortunate in a loving, empathetic, and dignified way.
Compassion Community Services:
We encourage all individuals who need assistance to make an appointement by calling (479) 717-5630 beginning at 8:30am on either Monday's or Thursday's. An appointment is encouraged but not required for pantry assistance. Those who make an appointment will be served first.
Compassion Conversation Team:
Everyone has a deep seeded desire to live a life full of peace and joy. However, in day to day living we don’t always feel that peace and joy. We all encounter trials and difficulties, and during those times of trial, we can either curl up in despair⎯or we can partner with those who will provide strength, encouragement, and hope. Our Compassion Conversation Team can be a resource of steady support so you can, prayerfully, return to living with peace and joy.
Feed the 479 Pantry:
We are excited to be a Northwest Arkansas choice pantry that offers healthy and fresh food options including multiple frozen foods. The pantry is available to any individual and gives the opportunity for each person to make selections based on family preferences, medical & dietary restrictions, or living conditions. The pantry is available to be shopped by clients every 60 days. Additionally we are a USDA distributing agency and clients who qualify are eligible to recieve USDA products each month. To participate in the USDA program a client must sign up with a USDA counselor who will walk you through the process during your time with us.
The Compassion Team can on a limited basis provide by appointment only the following. Utility assistance with a shutoff notice, fuel voucher with a valid drivers licsense, and clothing while supplies last. Concerning utility assistance it is important to be aware that utility deposits or re-connect fees do not qualify for assistance under our program policies. Limited appoitments are on a first come first served basis. To make an appointment please call (479) 717-5630 at 8:30am either Monday's or Thursday's.
