Division of Community Service and Nonprofit Support

Overview

The Division of Community Service & Nonprofit Support (DCSNS) strengthens community resources, volunteerism and national service in Arkansas.  We have been offering training, consulting, and information to all Arkansans since 1974 and we are the oldest state office of volunteerism in the nation.
 
Act 42 of 2011, changed our name from the Division of Volunteerism to the Division of Community Service & Nonprofit Support.
