PULASKI COUNTY, Ark. – An Arkansas organization is stepping up to give hope to communities.
Restore Hope is working to reduce incarceration and the need for foster care has launched a new community-led initiative to reach more Arkansans who may need help.
The “100 Families” nonprofit initiative launched Thursday in North Pulaski County.
The mission is to connect groups with the necessary software tools and case management skills they need.
Those resources will then be used to measure success in moving families out of crisis to stability – and then toward a career.
Restore Hope Executive Director Paul Chapman the program will help where it’s most needed.
“Essentially what we’re doing is we’re putting together an alliance of providers and community members that will each do their part in using some new technology to be able to communicate in a fully implicant way on behalf of families who want help from the community,” Chapman said.
Chapman said the initiative is based on another model that has already shown to be successful in other parts of Arkansas.
