UALR Children International

We help families and communities, one child at a time.

Since 1994 Children International and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock have been working in partnership to provide health and dental care, educational support, family assistance and other services to help empower children and families in their efforts to break through the barriers of poverty. To date, this partnership has benefited more than 16,000 children and youth living in Little Rock. Each year UALR CI sponsors 3,200 children and youth, ages 4-18, recruited from five partner schools serving the neighborhoods of Central and Southwest Little Rock.
