Spotlight on Nonprofits

In celebration of Savvy's 10-year anniversary we are putting the spotlight on some local superheroes who are doing good things for kids and families in Arkansas. 


What’s It All About? Every child in Arkansas should have a great education, a safe home and not have to worry about necessities like food and health care. Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families uses research, data and public policy advocacy to help make this vision a reality. Its mission is to ensure that all children and their families have what they need to lead healthy and productive lives.


When Was It Started? Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families was founded in 1977 by a group of prominent Arkansans who believed that children needed an “independent force to provide information and education to parents and citizens about our state’s policies toward children and families.”

How Can I Attend? Fill your bowl and help others Feb. 24 at Little Rock Soup Sunday, hosted by Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families at the Statehouse Convention Center. Enjoy an atmosphere that is casual and family friendly as you sample soups from more than 40 restaurants. This year, Jeff Owen of Ciao Baci will be the featured chef. Don’t forget your muffin tin!
