HRC Arkansas Answers the Question “What Are You Doing For Others?”

by Guest contributor January 20, 2016

Post submitted James K Rector, HRC Arkansas Field Organizer 

On Saturday, January 16, HRC Arkansas kicked off the weekend activities leading up to Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service with partners Immerse Arkansas and Lucie’s Place.  Volunteers gathered at Pulaski Heights Methodist Church with items that had been collected from area churches and individuals. The crew then divided up and moved to the respective locations to help organize, count inventory, clean, and educate themselves on the importance of these two organizations. 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 people together.

An alarming 40% of former foster youth are currently homeless and at-risk youth. Immerse Arkansas helps answer the question, “What happens when a foster youth “ages out” of the system?”

The organization provides support, guidance and stability to older and former foster youth as they transition to adulthood.

HRC Arkansas is also a strong community partner with Lucie’s Place, which provides homeless LGBTQ young adults in Central Arkansas with safe living environments, job training and counseling services in order to ensure lifelong stability and success, and works to promote equality and acceptance for LGBTQ young adults.

Over the coming year, HRC Arkansas plans on working with area churches and organizations to provide service more than one time a year in honor of Dr. King. To get involved with our year of service please contact James Rector at Make sure to put MLK Year of Service in the subject line.
