In 1985, the Arkansas Crisis Center (formerly known as the Northwest Arkansas Crisis Intervention Center) started as an all-volunteer organization committed to listening to Arkansans in crisis 24 hours a day.

Today, our staff and volunteers continue in the footsteps of our founders to restore hope, empower people and save lives through suicide awareness and crisis intervention services for those experiencing crisis in Arkansas. Our goal is that everyone will have the help they need to prevail over crises and will use the experience to make positive changes in their lives.

The ACC plays a crucial role in linking residents in need with available community resources. It is our vision that ACC will be the recognized leader in suicide awareness and crisis intervention services throughout the state of Arkansas.

The Arkansas Crisis Center is a 501(c)3 organization and needs your support to continue to provide our mission of Restoring Hope, Empowering People and Saving Lives in Arkansas.
