As a past Board member and now as an Advisor of Open Arms Shelter, I have seen first hand the struggle to keep all the beds available for Arkansas' children who are victims of abuse and/or neglect since joining the Board in 2004. This facility has served children from birth through 18 years of age 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year since 1986. Thousands of children have come through the Shelter over the years with the Staff positively influencing these lives who were victims of abuse and/or neglect.

The major funding comes through the Arkansas Department of Health Services. Fundraisers and private donations bridge the gap between the funding received through DHS and the actual cost of providing emergency and long-term shelter for the children.

All money is carefully managed and the books are examined monthly by the Board's Finance Committee and then audited annually by Ellis, Tucker & Aldridge, CPA's of Cabot, Arkansas.
