This form is for DCFS and court personnel to submit referrals to Northwest Arkansas Children’s Shelter for placement. Private care referrals need to be made via phone. Referrals submitted between 7:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. will receive a response the same day. Online referrals made outside of these hours will receive a response the next day. If the placement need is immediate and it is outside the designated hours, or if the online form is not accessible, please call (479) 795-2417 to refer via phone.
