Our House operates Arkansas’s only licensed child development center and youth program specifically targeted to homeless and near-homeless families. These programs not only make it easier for parents to find and keep a full-time job (the cornerstone requirement of our programs), but they also give us the chance to invest time, energy, and resources to help children thrive emotionally, developmentally, and academically. Our children’s programs serve homeless residents of Our House, former residents, CAFSI clients, and more. In our new Children’s Center we will be able to serve 150 children every day.

Our Club After School Program

The Our Club after school program is a great resource for residents of Our House and low income families with school age children. We provide youth ages 6-17 a safe, consistent, and comfortable place to learn and grow.

The four main components of Our Club are Education and Life Skills, Heath and Physical Fitness, Cultural Enrichment, and Community Service. Staff and volunteers take every opportunity to incorporate each of these principles into fun daily activities that enrich and engage. On a given day, an Our Club kid may experience:

  • African American culture and history
  • Cooking and nutrition
  • Gardening
  • One-on-one tutoring
  • Community service projects
  • Field trips
  • Guest speakers
  • Science Projects

Our Club loves our volunteers! You could tutor a child or teach a workshop. If you are looking to donate, school uniforms of all colors and sizes are a constant need.

Is my child eligible for Our Club?
