Ouachita Children’s Center provides the only emergency residential youth shelter for Garland and Clark counties. Because we are a local agency, community youth who need our shelter services are able to remain closer to environments they are familiar with. This provides them with the opportunity to have easier access to the support they need, both during and after their time in the shelter.
Our established programs, as well as our ongoing development of new programs, exist to support and assist youth and families in crisis who need our services. Click here for more information.
We have numerous fund raising events, special events, and activities throughout the year. Click here to explore upcoming events and learn more.
A wide variety of volunteer opportunities exist to facilitate our work with youth in crisis. Some opportunities are ongoing, while others involve working on specific projects, depending on the needs at the time. Volunteers must be age 18 or over. Click here to learn more.
