Benefitting the Southeast Arkansas Residential Center

Centers for Youth and Families, the oldest continuously operating nonprofit in Arkansas, opened the Southeast Arkansas Residential Center in Monticello in 2008.

The Southeast Arkansas Residential Center is a 26-bed home for boys and girls, ages five to 17, who are in need of residential care with educational, medical and psychiatric services all at one location.

We are typically home to 80 boys and girls every year. Youth who live with us may be in foster care or in care of guardian parent.

The majority of the boys and girls in our care are from southeast Arkansas.

In our care, every child has an individualized treatment plan, group and individual counseling, specialized education programming, recreational therapy, a safe and loving place to live with nutritious meals and a team to work with youth and families to help them become the best families they can be.

We rely on gifts from you to provide superior care to children and youth who need a little help to recover from or manage behavioral or emotional challenges and create pathways to future success.

For more information, call Karen Walker, Southeast Arkansas Residential Center Director, at 870-460-0066 or Melissa Hendricks, Foundation Director, at 501-666-9463 or email

You can give on-line at or by mail at PO Box 251801, Little Rock, AR 72225.
