The One, Inc.’s mission is simply to locate and love our unsheltered homeless neighbors, wherever they may be. We primarily serve these needs by going to the people. We visit current homeless camps, search for new camps, comb alleyways, check under bridges, and seek out people deep in the woods, etc. We take supplies such as food, water, clothing, and hygiene products to people where they are.
Our mission is to continue serving those who have served in the military through supplemental food sources. Our pantry is the only one in the state of Arkansas that is set up strictly for military veterans. We do not require anything except proof of military service (DD Form 214 or VA Healthcare ID or Military ID cards). We welcome Guardsmen, Reservists, and Retirees.
