How is AVRC funded?

Arkansas Valley Resource Center is a 501c(3) non profit community based agency. In that capacity our agency does not receive any automatic funding from any source. Funding is provided through grants from Federal, State, and Local Government agencies. Grants are written on an annual basis and awards are not guaranteed from year to year. Our agency also applies for various foundation grants. AVRC’s remaining income is comprised of monetary donations and fundraisers.

We Believe…

That Violent behavior, like any other human behavior, has been learned and can be unlearned.

That nonviolent ways of expressing anger and frustration can be learned.  In most cases this requires counseling.

That intervention by the criminal justice system can serve as an effective means of preventing further violence in the family.

That no one deserves to be beaten or threatened.  There are no excuses that justify abrasive behavior, sickness or stress.  Violence at home will not “just go away,” but with help it can be stopped.
