Current Status

Currently, the New Beginnings Community Initiative is in the Construction phase.  Here is our latest update…

Our Story

This is a “Housing First” approach to quickly and successfully connect individuals and families experiencing homelessness to permanent housing with few preconditions and barriers.

Once individuals are in a safe, secure, and clean environment, we will work with community partners to provide the appropriate services to work toward permanent housing solutions.

Working with Northwest Arkansas to End Homelessness

A growing number of towns and cities across the U.S. have found a practical solution to homelessness through the construction of micro-shelter communities.  Today these solutions are being proven effective initiatives to provide a housing first solution that will transition persons into permanent, stable housing solutions.
