MLK Day of Service in Little Rock

Join Us to Help LGBTQ Homeless Youth in Arkansas

Partners: Human Rights Campaign Arkansas & Immerse Arkansas

Let's come together as a community to serve LGBT homeless youth on MLK Day of Service. Taking place in January, MLK Day of Service is a "day on, not a day off." It is a way to transform Dr. King's life and teachings into community action to help bring together people, strengthen communities, and meet national challenges.

One such challenge is foster youth: an alarming 40% of former foster youth are currently homeless and at-risk youth. HRC and Immerse Arkansas invite you to partner with us on a service project benefiting foster youth in our Little Rock community.

How can YOU make a difference?
By donating items and volunteering your time.
