In December, one NW Arkansas family issued our community to a Christmas Challenge to raise support, awareness and money for the Our Step program.

If you missed their original posting & the challenge, here is a link to the video

“Our Step Christmas Challenge”

The results are in and we have some exiciting news to share about what your efforts have already accomplished!

We hope to share the first Our Step story on March 14th at a special gathering of the Cobblestone Project “Present in the City“.  All are welcome, there is no cost and it promises to be an incredible evening among community

What is Our Step?

Our Step is a collaborative housing initiative started by Seven Hills Homeless Shelter, Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter, Samaritan Community Center and the Cobblestone Project to provide people and families assistance in breaking the cycle of homelessness and domestic violence by eliminating the initial costs to secure affordable housing.
