They define themselves as a grassroots coalition of groups dedicated to building community awareness of the growing number of incarcerated mothers and their children, along with community organizing of grandparents and other relative caregivers throughout the state.

In order to fulfill this mission, Arkansas Voices has a wide variety of programs ranging from Parenting Classes for Incarcerated Mothers and Fathers, Family Re-entry Planning, and Family and Individual Conferencing to School-Based Support Groups, Youth with Incarcerated Parents Support Groups, and Scholarship Awards.
