"I learned that collaboration is a skill." (2018)

Rachel Townsend, Americas ToothFairy, Arkansas Oral Health Zone Manager

"The HARK Summit was a pivotal part of allowing service providers and community leaders to gather under one roof for the sole purpose of collaboration in NWA.  The presentations and the sneak preview into the Hark technology exceeded all my expectations.  Hark has an amazingly talented group of leaders and I feel privileged to be part of a community that lives out the concept of service before self.” (2017)

Debbie Martin, Executive Director Havenwood

"One of the aspects I loved about the summit was getting to spend an entire day surrounded by my people - other providers.  I often see them in passing, for moments, but today we got to spend a full day together and it was so good!” (2017)

Madi Hutson, Teen Action Support Center

"It's been a six-year journey for me, learning about the issue of human trafficking and modern slavery across the globe.  Hub of HOPE was formed to focus on a response to the issue right here in Northwest Arkansas and collaboration has been the key.  Connect the Community Summit 2017 was a timely opportunity for us at Hub of HOPE.   It was a beautiful experience to walk into the Summit and see so many of our partners in one space.  There was so much potential for collaborative impact in that room, a picture of a community uniting together for good.  

Jim Ferrell's challenge of keeping an outward mindset was both challenging and encouraging.  Jim presented with a perfect mixture of emotion and practicality, urging us to see others, then adjust our efforts, and finally measure our impact.  With Hub of HOPE being in its first year of existence, I can't think of a better keynote address to help guide us in our development and work.

I'm looking forward to future training presented by HARK at The Center for Collaborative Care and to seeing the benefits that this collective impact will bring to Northwest Arkansas!” (2017)

Jenny Sorey, Hub of Hope
