Cooperative Emergency Outreach provides emergency assistance to residents of Washington County, AR, living in  Fayetteville, Cane Hill, Elkins, Farmington, Greenland,  Goshen, Lincoln, Prairie Grove, Summers, West Fork, and Winslow.   We regret that we are unable to serve clients living outside of this area.

CEO is a COOPERATIVE group of churches assisting members of the community in EMERGENCY situations as part of an OUTREACH ministry.

We invite you to browse our site and learn about CEO, what we are doing in our community, and how you can help.

We are in our new facility at 1649 E. Hunstville Road.

Volunteers Needed!

CEO needs volunteers on both a permanent and substitute basis. There are many positions to be filled- receptionists, interviewers, computer operators, and food room workers. Only a few hours per month can make a huge difference.
If you are unable to work during the week, consider being a Saturday volunteer on the first Saturday of the month. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact your church representative, or email us.

Additional Hours!

CEO is open from 10-12 the first Saturday of each month. This will enable us to better assist clients whose employment makes it difficult for them to be at our office during the week.     


Tom and Jean Jacobsen, of Jacobsen Tours in Fayetteville, made the holidays a little brighter for many CEO clients.  For Thanksgiving and Christmas the Jacobsens donated 100 hams and turkeys, sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, apples, and oranges, to make the holiday extra special for many of our neighbors.  This the fourth year that we have been blessed with the generous donations from the Jacobsens.  
Thank you, Tom & Jean!
CEO is so grateful for the long term support of the wonderful folks at the Fayetteville Library.  Once again the Food for Fees program, which gives library patrons the opportunity to donate food in lieu of book fees, helped to fill CEO shelves for the holidays.  
Thanks to Sam Palmer, Scotty Raines, and Jonathan Atha who delivered 2440 pounds of food to CEO, and to circulation manager Gwyneth Jelinck for helping to organize the drive.
These children are learning about community involvement at a young age, and we are so proud of them!  They collected food at their birthday party and then delivered it to CEO so that could see their generosity at work.  They were inspired bybig brother, who had recently done the same for his birthday.  Thanks to these children and their parents!
Another group of long term CEO supporters is the UofA women's swim and dive team who donated a day at Harp's grocery on Crossover Rd. to collect food for CEO.  
Thanks so much to these young women and to community service coordinator Rodger Hunter
