Office of Communications and Community Engagement
To educate Arkansans, engage communities, and promote agency transparency.
The Office of Communications and Community Engagement informs Arkansans about DHS programs and services, strengthens the agency’s community relationships and promotes meaningful volunteerism in Arkansas. Its vision is a state where citizens are engaged in service to others, communities are transformed and DHS thrives as an agency of change.
The communications team handles all internal and external communication for the agency, including media inquiries, social media content, the agency newsletter, website content and other marketing and educational materials for DHS. The team works with all DHS divisions as part of the shared services concept.

|Community Engagement and Faith-based Partnerships Team|
Community Engagement and Faith-based Partnerships team believes that by engaging citizens in meaningful and impactful volunteer opportunities, we have the chance to tackle chronic social issues that keep Arkansans of all ages from living up to their full potential. We envision a state that has citizens who are engaged in service to others and communities that are transformed by that work. The Office administers the AmeriCorps program and other federally-funded national service programs. In addition, the Office works with a wide-range of non-profits and faith-based organizations from across Arkansas. It also is the coordinating agency/office for volunteer and donations management within the state with the support of members of the Arkansas Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (ARVOAD).
VolunteerAR - is a joint effort of the Governor’s Advisory Commission on National Service and Volunteerism and the Department of Human Services’ Office of Communications and Community Engagement. The Commission is non-partisan and made up of passionate commissioners who believe that volunteers are vital to creating strong, vibrant communities.
