Women and Children First
Women and Children First has been working hard over the last 40 years to help women and children escape domestic violence in Central Arkansas. They work to empower the women and children to live independently and free from domestic violence. They are able to do this by sheltering them during a crisis, and helping them through with legal advocacy, social advocacy, support services, education, and community outreach. In 2016 alone Women and Children First assisted 1,030 people with legal and support issues, housed 61 people, and helped 330 children caught up in abusive situations. The work that Women and Children First does in the community for victims of domestic violence is why Rainwater, Holt & Sexton is excited to present them this month’s Spirit of Arkansas Award.
Rainwater, Holt & Sexton is partnered with KATV Channel 7 to present the “Spirit of Arkansas Award.” The award is given to local charities doing exceptional work in the community. To be considered for the Spirit of Arkansas Award, a charity can apply here.
