COMPASSION DRIVEN ORGANIZATION
Raising Arrows is a non-profit, non religious organization that currently serves our community and rural parts of Walker county. The mission is to provide quality care, social community, life empowerment, and healthy eating.
We have many different components of Raising Arrows. The vision is growing almost daily as the needs of our children and community are being revealed. We have established a safe and interactive program for the youth of our county and hope to continue to do more.
Raising Arrows has been in operation for only Three years. We are young but have accomplished a lot in our three years of operation.
THE PROGRAM HAS HELPED OUR KIDS TREMENDOUSLY. THE KIDS LEAVE US FED EACH DAY. MANY STUDENTS EVEN COME BACK FOR SECONDS, WHICH IS ALWAYS AVAILABLE. HONESTLY, THIS HAS BECOME A SELLING POINT FOR MANY STUDENTS ON WETHER THEY COME OR NOT. WE ARE VERY THANKFUL.

RAISING ARROWS PROVIDES GREAT MEALS FOR OUR STUDENTS. THEY ARE NUTRITIOUS, SEASONED JUST RIGHT AND SIMPLY DELICIOUS. THE STUDENTS GO BACK FOR SECONDS, AND SOMETIMES EVEN THIRDS. PARENTS ARE GRATEFUL FOR THIS PROGRAM. MANY CHILDREN DO NOT RECEIVE A HOT MEAL WHEN THEY GO HOME, BUT BECAUSE OF THIS WONDERFUL, GOD-SENT PROGRAM, RAISING ARROWS, OUR CHILDREN BENFIT IN THE MOST HEART-WARMING AND LOVING WAY. JUST BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE IN OUR CHILDREN AND WANT THE BEST. HATS OFF TO RAISING ARROWS!
