The mission of Catholic Charities of Arkansas is rooted in the challenge of the Gospel: to serve with dignity and respect persons who are poor or marginalized; to advocate on behalf of the most vulnerable; and to actively promote charity, justice and the sanctity of life in the Church and in the community. We strive to accomplish this mission through our ministries and programs in the Diocese of Little Rock. | DonateContact Us Facebook
