A CareLink Meals on Wheels recipient greets the volunteer who delivers fresh meals to his doorstep each day.


CareLink is a non-profit that has been serving older people and their family caregivers for over 38 years by connecting them with resources to meet the opportunities and challenges of aging.

As Arkansas remains the worst in the nation for senior hunger and the aging population continues to grow, we provide over 20 programs to help homebound older people stay safely at home as long as possible; active older people stay fit, healthy and involved; and family caregivers care for their aging loved ones.


  • Donations to Meals on Wheels ensure seniors in Little Rock, North Little Rock and Maumelle know where their next meals is coming from.
  • Donations to our Urgent Needs fund provide assistance during emergencies where there is no other help available, such as home repairs or replacements.
  • Donations to provide mileage and a stipend to Senior Companion volunteers who are seniors themselves, providing chores and companionship to other homebound older people.
