In early 2022, Assistance & Resource Center, Inc. (ARC) was both humbled and thrilled to be recognized
by the River Falls Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau as the 2021 Non-Profit of the Year! ARC’s
mission for more than a decade has been to assist local households with the short-term financial means
to help pay for basic needs such as housing, transportation, and utilities. What great recognition for
ARC’s ongoing work in the community.
