With Rhonda from River Falls Municipal Utility, discussing "Breaking the Cycle," an educational/budget planning course for our clients.  

Thank you, Cathy, for the beautiful ark! 

ARC Board of Directors, 2016


  • ARC was formed in 2008 to provide short term assistance and resources to those living in the River Falls, WI School District. ARC received its 501(c)(3) status in 2009.  On January 1, 2013, the organization took a leap of faith and broadened our coverage area to include the Ellsworth, WI School District.  
  • ARC is the go-to financial resource organization that reliably provides assistance in our communities, all year long.
  • On average, about 96% of our funds go directly back to our community. We have found that by encouraging our clients to make pay arrangements, do matching payments, and access other available resources, we are able to help stretch those 96 cents even further.
  • We don’t have any paid staff. We’re a grassroots, community-minded, 100% volunteer-driven organization comprised of  phone volunteers, board members and external members.
