C.O.R.E.

'...whatever you have done unto the least of these you have done unto me'  Matthew 25
Millwood Christian Church considers it a privilege to help support the work of the Community OurReach Extension C.O.R.E..  Each month the congregation at Millwood, surrounding organizations in the community of Northwest Arkansas, and the people who participate and help at our Bingo events donate personal items that are redistributed to the homeless community in Northwest Arkansas. At Millwood community means everything and we do what we can to give back to the community we live in.

Seven Hills originated from a University of Arkansas student project that assessed the needs of individuals visiting the Salvation Army in Fayetteville within a two-year period (1998 - 2000). When the Center was founded in the winter of 2000, it set forth to fill a gap in services within the community. Seven Hills began as a day shelter providing basic services such as food, shelter, showers, laundry and telephone services. Since then, the center has created three transitional housing programs to aid individuals to achieve self-sufficiency.
In April 2001, the Center began its first men's transitional housing program within our facilities, titled "Fresh Start." In 2004, the acquisition of a second building allowed the Center to launch a transitional housing program for a veteran's recovery program and a transitional women's program.
Today, Seven Hills has expanded its services to lessen the number of those effected by homelessness within our community. All of this was made possible through a compassionate vision, and the generosity and support of many individuals, churches, and foundations within Northwest Arkansas.
