Ozark Opportunities, Inc. (OOI) is temporarily suspending assistance for housing related emergencies.
A spokesperson for OOI says, “This is a difficult decision. However, in order for staff to process the hundreds of applications received in November, it is necessary. Our hope is to reopen assistance, once current applications are processed and funds are available.”
OOI serves a six-county area in North Central Arkansas: Baxter, Boone, Marion, Newton, Searcy and Van Buren.
