A Word

From Our Director

" Dear Parents and Members of our Community,

We are happy to be a part of the Fort Smith community, and a United Way of The Fort Smith Community Partner Program. Since 1994, we have served underprivileged children of the River Valley Region. I have been a part of Lincoln Childcare for 10 years, and have loved every minute of my time here. 

I look forward to having the opportunity to serve the community and your children for years to come."

- Jennifer Rudder
Executive Director
