Mission Statement: To create an environment where the love and compassion of Jesus Christ can help people overcome and prevent life’s adversities.
For over sixty-five years, the Mission has served thousands of men, women and children by helping them rebuild their lives and restoring hope in Jesus Christ. We cannot complete our Mission without the help of the community. We are a faith-based non-profit that doesn’t receive government or state funding. Everything we have depends on the donations of the public! The Mission has two divisions: the Dorcas House and the Nehemiah House.
The Dorcas House provides a safe, Christian environment for women and children who are victims of domestic violence. Arkansas ranks in the top 3 states for domestic homicides! We seek to break the cycles of domestic violence, rather than just be a “band aid” for these victims. We also have a drug and alcohol rehibilitation program. We provide emergency services like food, shelter, clothing and crisis intervention to more than 400 women and children annually.
We work with law enforcement to promote the protection and safety of residents.
National Domestic Violence Hotline
The Nehemiah House reaches out to the homeless, addicted and disadvantaged men from all areas of life. With the news of some places closing their doors to men, we have seen an increase of homeless men seeking shelter here. Along with providing a safe place for the homeless, we have a 9 month recovery program for drug and alcohol addiction. Those who are struggling with chemical dependency and other addictions find hope and support to break the shackles of their addictions and rebuild their lives. The foundation of the recovery program is evangelism.
**Both the Dorcas House and the Nehemiah House provides classes, chapel time, counseling, long term care after graduation, clothing, hygiene products, medications, food, room/board, transportation, and much more. We also have a work program for both houses that help transition each guest into the world outside of our program.
