Thanks to purchases from the Arkansas Razorbacks Blanket for a Blanket
program, 100 donation blankets were delivered to 7 Hills Homeless Center
in Fayetteville, AR. Focused on bringing quality services to the homeless and poor in Northwest Arkansas, 7 Hills offers multiple educational and relational opportunities to assist in their clients' success. Most of the over 2,000 people who find themselves homeless in Benton and Washington counties are families with children (veterans make of the remainder).
"Thanks again for the blankets," said 7 Hills Program Director Melissa Moon. Shown above: Jeff Walker (client specialist) and Deja Glover (case manager).
According to 7 Hills, those in need may ultimately find themselves homeless as a result of 'individual factors' like substance/ domestic abuse, divorce and job loss or 'structural' factors' such as weak safety nets, lack of affordable income and limited income. With selfless volunteers and a supportive community around them, freedom from their current circumstances are within reach. With A Purpose is honored to give blankets to this wonderful organization.
