March 31 Tornado

In the wake of the March 31 tornadoes, communities and families across Pulaski and Lonoke Counties will be responding and rebuilding into the foreseeable future. Heart of Arkansas United Way is here to help. 

Short Term Recovery

In the immediate aftermath of the March 31 tornadoes, services like shelter, clean up, and food distribution are the greatest needs. 

If you were affected by the tornado and are looking for resources:

  • The State of Arkansas's HelpArkansas.gov provides information on federal and state resources available.
  • Our partners at Our House have compiled a list of available resources. Visit ourhouseshelter.org/disaster to learn more.
  • The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has a Disaster Distress helpline available 24/7 for those who need access to counseling services in the wake of the disaster.
