Hope Village USA is located in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and serves the children and families of Fort Smith and the River Valley. Fort Smith is located alongside the Arkansas River, and it is home to over 87,000 people. The surrounding counties have a population of over 211,000.

Challenges in Northwest AR

In June of 2021, 4,851 Arkansan children were involved in the foster care system.​ This is a 12.7% increase in the last two years. So many homes in northwest Arkansas are broken due to the devastating effects of addiction, neglect, and abuse.

River Valley families, particularly those living in low-income situations, are deeply in need of support before they enter a season of crisis, before children are moved into foster care, and before both children and parents in need feel lost or forgotten.

About Hope Village USA

Prior to the pandemic, Hope Village USA was challenged with several challenging issues such as continued growth, the question of how to better serve the children of our community, and how to see  healthy ongoing change in their lives.  We are committed to providing long-term discipleship through every season of life, from childhood to adult. We are attempting to develop biblical paths to inspire, equip, and empower children, students, and their families with the spiritual, social, and practical tools they need to become leaders in their schools, neighborhoods, and beyond. We believe that whole communities can eventually be transformed through healthy, genuine, individual relationships shaped by the characteristics and values of Jesus Christ. The combined challenges of a global pandemic, leadership changes, and other issues derailed our efforts.

However, we eventually saw the unprecedented challenges as a positive and not a negative, a window of opportunity to better strategize and position Hope Village toward a more effective and tangible ministry. Hope Village Arkansas will become a campus where the character and values of Christ are used to serve our community and beyond. It will be a mission center where future followers of Christ are trained to become leaders in their communities with a vision to infiltrate the existing cultures of hopelessness and build cultures of hope through the unfailing life-applicable teachings of Jesus Christ. It will be a place to learn of Christ and live as Christ.
