Little Rock’s Local Cause: The One, Inc.

by Sarabeth, Kerri, Kyran & Donna on April 23, 2014

At every Listen To Your Mother show, all across the country, a percentage of the ticket sales go to a local non-profit that benefits women and families. We are so pleased that our portion from the Little Rock show will go to a new project of The One, Inc.

If you live around Little Rock, you’ve probably heard of The One – perhaps by way of it’s infamous vehicle, The Van. This grassroots organization serves area homeless and impoverished people in simple, practical, somewhat radical ways; by going to where they are and bringing them what they need. Whether it’s using The Van to drive to homeless camps and deliver water, or planting crops at the community garden, The Field, this organization is always finding new ways to help. And the founder, Aaron Reddin, has become a catalyst in the Little Rock area, constantly keeping the needs of the homeless out in front of us.

From their website:

The One, Inc. exists to identify and meet needs of our homeless and/or impoverished neighbors that are not currently being met.  Our mission is to fill the gaps that prevent those in need from gaining independent lives once again.

We primarily serve these needs by going to the people in need, wherever they may be.  We visit current homeless camps, search for new camps, comb alleyways, check under bridges, and seek out the needy deep in the woods, etc. We take supplies such as food, water, clothing and hygiene products to people where they are.  We take services to people where they are.  The One, Inc. seeks to build relationships with members of the homeless community so that we may then identify barriers to obtaining employment and housing, and help our friends move beyond their homelessness.

The One’s latest project is opening a shelter for women and children called The Nest. Proceeds from LTYM Little Rock will go directly to support this effort, and we are so happy to be a part! Get your tickets now, and support a great cause while you celebrate Mother’s Day!

Her favorite thing to do is sit on the back deck with family and friends while her husband is cooking something delicious on the smoker. Her family shares their North Little […]
