Renewal Ranch is working hard to help Arkansas achieve Victory Over Violence by working with those addicted to drug and alcohol. The faith based program is run by James Loy who overcame a personal cocaine addiction in 2005. The program works with men by providing counseling, worship, structured activities, and community service opportunities. The more people that Renewal Ranch helps, the less drug violence there will be in Arkansas. That is why they are an excellent choice for the Rainwater, Holt & Sexton Victory Over Violence Difference Makers Award.
The Difference Makers award is in conjunction with the Victory Over Violence campaign launched by KARK Channel 4 and Fox 16. Once a month, Rainwater, Holt & Sexton presents a $1,000 donation to an organization fighting violence in the community and has established themselves as a true Difference Maker. The partnership goal is to create a safer Central Arkansas by uniting community groups promoting change through improvements in education, jobs, mentoring, and hunger.
