Providing Shelter in Every Season

In times of need and cold weather, let us help. The Salvation Army of NWA has two shelters – one in Bentonville and one in Fayetteville. Our Emergency Shelters are open 365 days a year (no matter the weather) providing a place for men, women and families in the evenings. We have beds for 46 people in Bentonville and 26 in Fayetteville. Whenever the weather drops below 34 degrees, we also open warming centers (all day) and cold-weather night shelters. These provide places for people to stay warm, rest, and eat a meal. During times of cold-weather if our shelter beds are full, we create overflow indoor space and provide cots and blankets to those in need. Our shelter areas are monitored and divided by men, women and families for safety. If you know of a need, please contact either of our shelters. Bentonville: 479-271-9545 or Fayetteville: 479-521-0857. Learn more about our shelters online.

Red Kettle Wrap Up


JANUARY 5, 2018

For the 2017 giving season, The Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas raised $361,829 as part of its annual Red Kettle campaign. Donations collected at Kettle locations in Northwest Arkansas equaled $352,161 with an additional $9,668 coming in through online gifts for this campaign. We concluded our Kettle season at 86.1% of our goal of $420,000.

“We want to thank each community in Northwest Arkansas for their generosity this year. As the kettle season came to an end, we asked for your continued support and many people stepped up to help make a difference. Your financial support will allow us to continue to provide for people when they need it most. This means providing shelter from the cold, food for the hungry, clothing and utility assistance for families, and hope for men seeking to break free from the bondage of addiction. We enter 2018 with much anticipation as we look for new ways to meet the needs of people here in Northwest Arkansas,” said Captain Joshua Robinett, Area Commander, Northwest Arkansas

Not only did people give generously this season as part of our Red Kettle campaign by many companies, churches, groups and families gave their time as bell ringers to make a difference. Thank you to everyone who joined us this Christmas season.
