The Badger Health Center is a comprehensive community resource that offers a wide array of services aimed at fostering overall well-being. One branch of the center contains our ARcare medical clinic, which provides essential healthcare services to students, staff, and community members. Adjacent to the medical clinic is the Badger Family Center, offering a range of family resources, from educational support to guidance on parenting and life skills. The Badger Health Center also provides dedicated mental health services as well as houses our Badger Family Food Pantry and laundry services.

We invite you to visit the Badger Health Center and experience all of the services offered! Whether it's medical care, mental health services, resources from the Family Center, or even laundry assistance, our goal is to contribute positively to the well-being of our entire district and community.

With your permission, Beebe School District personnel can assist with transportation of your student to and from the clinic during the school day. Please note, in order for the school personnel to transport your child to the ARCare appointment, you will need to complete page 2 of the patient paperwork (linked below) and select “ School Staff” on the ‘Consent to Treatment’ form. On page 4, HIPAA Privacy Practices Consent form, ‘Beebe School Staff’ must be listed in the box.

  • Any family with a child enrolled in the district can get food regardless of their income or employment situation.

  • Families can shop for food on the third Wednesday of every month between 8:30 and noon

  • All items are donated or are purchased with donations and grants. We are always grateful to have donations of money or food to support the pantry. To donate, you may contact our Badger Family Pantry Coordinator, Mackye Sandlin.
