Art on the Border Beneficiaries 2023
Our purpose for presenting Art on the Border has always been to raise funds to assist a wide variety of local organizations serving those in need in our community.
Charities We Support
Good Samaritan Clinic
In 2023, the Good Samaritan Clinic (GSC) will be celebrating 20 years as a charitably supported, community-based and locally governed IRSrecognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to serving the holistic health needs of area residents without insurance or who are otherwise underserved and cannot afford quality and compassionate continuity of care. This includes care planning, counseling and education; chiropractic, occupational and physical therapy; dental, medical, mental health and optical care; and prescription and transportation assistance for over 5,000 patient visits annually. Our goal is to help our marginalized neighbors gain independence and self-sufficiency. #wearegoodsam!
Riverview HOPE Campus is a social services agency that serves the homeless and underserved populations of Fort Smith and the River valley. By providing a safe environment and comprehensive services, HOPE Campus partners with homeless adults on their journey to self-sufficiency and permanent housing. HOPE Campus provides three meals a day, 136 nightly shelter beds, case management, an onsite hair salon, Mercy Medical clinic, dog kennels for those traveling with their companion, laundry facility, and warming/cooling stations for those inclement weather days.
The CALL in Crawford & Sebastian Counties started over 10 years ago with a small group of volunteers and has grown into one of the largest affiliates of The CALL across the state of Arkansas. We work with families who are seeking to foster or adopt to ensure a smooth and efficient process to open their home. We offer support services to any family that needs us, which includes tangible items such as diapers or household goods as well as monthly support groups and family fun events. We also offer our Support Center to families involved with DHS, to provide a safe and homey atmosphere for family visits.
Arkansas True Vision Children's Homes
Arkansas True Vision Children’s Homes is a not-for-profit Arkansas corporation affiliated with Family Ministries which provides both emergency and long-term care to abused and neglected children in a Christian environment. This includes providing 24/7 care on our campus and through private foster homes placements. In Western Arkansas, services are provided by the Maggie House in Charleston, a Qualified Residential Treatment Program for 13–17-year-old children, and the Curt, Cliff and Opal Young Children’s Homes in Fort Smith which serves children of all ages. The Young Children’s Homes, located on 20 acres at Chaffee Crossing, concentrates on caring for sibling groups both in the emergency shelter and foster homes located on campus and in private foster homes
