The Victory over Violence Difference Maker goes to organizations helping central Arkansas declare victory over violence. Poverty and violence sometimes go hand in hand. The Van in Little Rock is helping fight poverty by working with the homeless in Little Rock.
Every night The Van goes out in literal vans all around Little Rock to hand out supplies, food, water, hygiene products, and anything else the unsheltered might need. They don’t just fill there momentary needs though. Aaron and his team do a great job of being intentional in forming a relationship and getting to know the people they help. They get to know how else they can help them and work to identify and break the barriers to obtaining income and housing. The ultimate goal of the Van to help those they get to know move beyond homelessness.
The relational work that the Van does for the homeless in Little Rock is truly making a difference. We are honored to present the Difference Maker award to The Van and we are very grateful for the work they are doing in the community.
