Asset Mapping Meeting - Johnson County 100 Families

UHDC was thrilled to be a part of the collaborative Asset Mapping meeting hosted by 100 Families where representatives from various community organizations came together to discuss and identify resources available to support families in need. This interactive session aimed to foster collaboration and explore ways in which our collective efforts can create a more significant impact on the well-being of our community. Participation and insights are crucial as we work together to make a positive difference in the lives of families in our community.

Per their Pope and Yell County Facebook page, "100 Families is a community-led initiative to help struggling families move out of crisis, into stability, and onto careers. We do this by engaging community organizations, non-profits, government agencies, and public officials to work together to make population level changes, using existing community resources, and training case managers in the 100 Families Model." This includes areas like housing, transportation, employment, education, addiction/recovery, and food stability. 

100 Families Restore Hope Housing Solutions 

The goal of the housing development arm of Restore Hope is to assist in both the creation of affordable housing and to add transitional housing beds for harder to house Arkansans. The team consults with partners on projects and assists communities in putting together the project and financing for housing development.  
Housing is a fundamental need for families and we believe in housing PLUS: that housing isn't just about a roof over your head, but all families are best served holistically, with housing, recovery, transportation, employment, and education improvements in mind depending upon each individual's and family's needs. Restore Hope seeks funding for Arkansas families to meet these housing needs.
