About the Fountain of Youth Adult Day Center

A Caring Alternative Since 1989


Since 1989, the Fountain of Youth Adult Day Center has been privileged to serve caregiving families in Western Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma. As a non-profit agency, overseen by a dedicated volunteer board of directors, the Fountain of Youth is a vital community asset that affects the quality of life and well-being of hundreds of people and has reached thousands of people over the years.


We are licensed by the Arkansas Department of Human Services and Office of Long Term Care, the Sebastian County Health Department, the City of Fort Smith and the Veterans Administration.


As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, The Fountain of Youth receives funding from a variety of sources. We depend on the communities we serve to help us continue in our mission to offer excellent, accessible and affordable adult day services. Our generous donors make up a “behind-the-scenes” force which helps to meet our financial needs: individuals, churches, civic clubs and businesses working together!


The Fountain of Youth also receives annual operations funding from:
