Providing Service for Over 55 Years
The Economic Opportunity Agency was established in December 1965 to help low-income families succeed economically and socially in Northwest Arkansas. We believe that when we empower families to succeed through their own efforts, we empower all of Northwest Arkansas to succeed as a great place to work and live.
Values & Behaviors
EOA embraces this core set of values and behaviors that are reflected in our organizational culture.
I am responsible for the energy I bring to situations and approach my work with a sense of possibility and positivity.
I do what is right over what is fast, easy, or comfortable.
I recognize and congratulate customers, staff, and volunteers on their good work.
I do what I say I am going to do, and I am aware of my competencies and limitations.
I choose to embrace our values rather than simply profess them.
I treat others with respect and fairness.
Empowering children and families to learn, connect, and succeed.
EOA has a vision of Northwest Arkansas as a resilient community where children and families experiencing adverse circumstances have the opportunity to thrive, become sufficient, and live an improved quality of life.
