Even with the economic boom that Northwest Arkansas has experienced in the last decade, many families and individuals are still in great need of economic and educational resources to break the cycle of poverty.
- 20% of all households in South Fayetteville live under the poverty level
- 1 in 4 South Fayetteville residents have been homeless at some point in their lives
- 82% of all students at the local elementary school in South Fayetteville are on the free lunch program
- Washington County is second only to Pulaski County with the number of people living below poverty level
- South Fayetteville has the highest number of low income households in Northwest Arkansas
Statistics show that this level of poverty leads to homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse, rising crime rates, and serious health conditions.

In 1983, a group of women gathered to create a
support organization for Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
A grassroots volunteer movement began, and a
statewide network of Circle of Friends chapters
was soon created.
Over the past 25 years, Circle of Friends has grown to
include more than 700 members. These members have
raised nearly $10 million for the children served by
Arkansas Children’s Hospital. The strength and power
of Circle of Friends comes from these volunteers, who
give their time, talents and treasures every year.
