Compassion and Relief Efforts

Here we provide relief for those in need

Food Pantry

Our Food Pantry serves all Little Rock Zip Codes. We are open each Tuesday of the month, except when a Tuesday falls on the fifth week,  from 10:00am-2:00pm. You may attend the Food Pantry once a month.

 To make a reservation for the Food Pantry call (501) 396-3333 on Mondays between 10:00am-1:00pm for the following Tuesday.

Clothing Closet

Everyone has a basic need for clothing and hygiene items. We are fortunate to receive many donations and have multiple volunteers to sort and stock them. This gives us the opportunity to work with organizations and ministries in our community to resource them with clothing and small household items. If we are the clothes provider, organizations can spend their valuable time investing in those who benefit from their specific gifts and talents.

Our Clothing Closet serves many roles:
Tuesday 10am-2pm – Food Pantry visitors shop during their reservation time
Wednesday (time varies) – Re-Entry Program Shopping
Thursday 9am-3pm – Donation Drop off

Dental Clinic

Our clinic sustained storm damage in September and has been closed for repair.  
We will reopen in January 2024

Qualifications are:
• No dental insurance

If you have any additional questions about the dental clinic, please contact (501) 396-3358.

Development Area

This area houses our adult education classrooms and other spaces where we can have classes and one-on-one, life-on-life interaction.
This space will also offer us the ability to create space for others in the city who are working towards the same goals to connect and sharpen one another.
Lastly, this space will be available to be rented for events in the city, with the proceeds going directly back into the ministries of the City Center.
