Our Beginning

Seeing the need for an organization to provide non-profit work in this area, the Russellville Area Ministerial Alliance and the River Valley United Way formed our organization in 1992 to provide educational, financial solutions and life skills to the community during emergencies. We've consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!   Help Network became a faith-based non-profit organization located in Russellville, Arkansas. From 1993 through 2001, Help Network served as an “information and referral” center for potential clients; regarding services available to low-income families and individuals.


Our History

Beginning in 2002, Help Network started providing direct assistance to clients; rather than referring families and individuals to other agencies or churches to receive needed help. We've consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!  


Our Future

Continue working with community leaders to solve some of our communities’ most pressing challenges through program development that is diverse and innovative. Programs that will educate and empower low-income families and individuals to break free from the barriers of poverty.
