Program Description

A bottled water drive for the Day Room at Next Step Homeless Services will be held during the month of August at all Fort Smith Public Library locations.  Bottled water is essential for homeless clients, especially those unsheltered. As hot weather continues, staying hydrated remains a daily challenge for the homeless.  Cases of individual-sized bottles (16 ounces) are desired; feel free to drop off your donations at your neighborhood library.  The Next Step Homeless Services opened in Fort Smith in 2002, and remains a leader in homeless services in the community providing supportive housing, a Day Room and a resource center for homeless individuals. Next step cases managers with backgrounds in social service work help homeless clients seek solutions to homelessness through individual case management with direction toward self-sufficiency.
