Giving Back and Local Community Culture is Our Core Value
Our House empowers homeless and near-homeless families and individuals to succeed in the workforce, in school, and in life through hard work, wise decision-making, and active participation in the community.
We not only give money we believe in giving our time as well.
Founder and Owner Judy Waller sits on the board or Arkansas Hospice and Parkstone Retirement Living Center.
Chief Operations Officer Drew Weber is on the Board of Directors for Our House. Each year, Drew chairs Project Swim which was started to ensure that Our House's 150 kids have a great summer. More than $8,000 in cash and donated items were gifted in 2016.
Mark Lukas is the Vice President of the Levy Business Owners Association.
Linda Riser has helped chair several events at Our House.
Our managers get involved by spending time at the Little Rock Food Bank, cleaning up at the Little Rock Zoo, or when disaster strikes in Arkansas as it sometimes does, by helping our storm-stricken neighbors.
It is our strong belief that the more we invest in our communities, the more our communities will invest their time and money with us.
Part of the Neighborhood
As a restaurant, we are quite unique. Our restaurant's are not cookie cutter big box-type stores with directives from “corporate” about how to run the business. Each of our stores have a lot of latitude in deciding the best way to operate that individual restaurant to meet the needs of the local community. That makes community giving really special and fun.
From the Restaurant
Our team members are part of the local community, and they are passionate about supporting local causes that are important to our neighbors. It’s a given that each restaurant donates food and time to area food banks and shelters. Team members are constantly volunteering their time and expertise to an assortment of local non-profits.
If you have questions about our donation policy or have a nonprofit or educational organization you would like us to support, please contact the Corporate Office.
Arkansas Hospice is an award-winning leader in its efforts to transform the individual and cultural experience of hospice care in Arkansas.
At the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, we are the home of the state’s only academic health sciences center. With clinics covering nearly every medical specialty, our research and educational programs inspire new knowledge that results in better diagnosis and more advanced patient care.
