What We Do

The Children’s Emergency Shelter provides shelter and care for children, ages 6-17, who have been removed from the custody of their guardian(s) by child welfare authorities. The CES serves over 250 per year and provides approximately 6000 nights of care each year to abused and neglect children of the community.

The CES mission includes allowing kids in crisis the opportunity to JUST BE KIDS!

 

 

How You Can Help

Even though the children in our care are at the CES because the State of Arkansas has placed them here, we depend largely on our community for donations and financial support…Here are ways you can help us successfully serve our children.

Thank you for helping us take care of our kids!

About CES

“These are our community’s children in crisis. They have been denied the opportunity to live their early years in safety among trusted adults, which should be every child’s birthright. Often their world is changed beyond recognition overnight by the actions of their families. They no longer have their own bed, their own neighborhood friends, or the love and support of those who should care most about them. In a real sense, their hope for a happy childhood has been taken from them.”
