About Us

Northwest Arkansas Continuum of Care

The Northwest Arkansas Continuum of Care is a non-profit coalition of community organizers, advocates, providers and community leaders who are passionate in ending homelessness in our region. Through a national model called Built for Zero, our community will reach an effective end to homelessness of Veterans in 2019 and for chronic and unsheltered individuals by 2025. Our region encompasses Washington, Benton, Carroll and Madison Counties. The group is led by an all-volunteer board of Directors.
