Help for Today. Hope for Tomorrow.
Who We Are
The Arkansas Crisis Center is a nonprofit organization that was founded on hope.
Following a rash of teen suicides in 1985 at Rogers High School, a group of concerned volunteers realized the importance of providing hope through helpline services to teens in crisis in Northwest Arkansas. The vast need for our helpline quickly became apparent, and we expanded to provide these services to all age groups across the entire state.
Our mission of restoring hope, empowering people, and saving lives through suicide prevention continues to this day. By helping anyone and everyone in any type of crisis, we can combat Arkansas’s rising suicides rates. Our vision for Arkansas is Zero Suicides by 2025.
By calling our helpline at 988 our crisis call specialists confidentially and anonymously offer intervention and counseling, link the caller with resources in their area, and ultimately, save lives by preventing crises from becoming life-threatening.
At the Arkansas Crisis Center, we believe in providing help for today and hope for tomorrow. If you or someone you know needs to talk, we are here to listen!
