About Freedom Finder


Freedom Finder Inc., is a nonprofit, 501c3, providing resources for domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking victims. These resources include ‘freedom’ options in the form of hotel rooms, short-term storage, pre-paid phones, pet fostering for pets, as well as discounted locksmith, mechanic, and security systems for victims.

Founded in February of 2023 when the need for a centralized list of resources became apparent for women in Northwest Arkansas. The initial resources were hard to find as victims often were not able to grasp all the needs. Additionally, more factors came to light for those fleeing an abusive situation to find places to stay for their family, a place to store property, and a safe haven for pets.

Our mission is to help find ways to provide resources and education to help women, men, and children find healthy avenues to get out of abusive situations. Some of the areas of education are about what abuse looks like, how to find their voice, and how to be safe leaving the situation.

Join us in fighting abuse by donating money or resources for these victims of abuse. Your money will go towards all of the resources mentioned to help victims safely leave an abusive situation.
