In February 2017, I was taken into the Children’s Shelter at 3:27 a.m.
Due to my past, I was terrified of what I may be walking in to. What if this is the last time I see my brothers? What if I’m completely removed from my “normal” life? I can only imagine what my brothers thought, let alone any other child in the system. This being said, I was shocked walking in to see portraits painted among the walls, a dining room, welcoming staff members … gosh, don’t get me started on how shocked I was to see that we had legit rooms.
They’re decorated! It’s amazing. Here at the Shelter they do their best to make you feel as welcomed and comfortable as possible … Northwest Arkansas Children’s Shelter has honestly done the best they can do to help me in life. There was never a day that went by that I felt uncared for.
It was very hard adjusting, but I knew I was always okay in their hands.

The Shelter is a great place with warm hearts, open minds and lots of care.

My new bed makes me happy. And I am clean and have a new shirt.

I love it here because I feel safe. The staff are here for me when I need them. Plus, I got to go to a Razorback game!
