Reinforcing our mission through

Healing Power and Connection
For Women

Hope Rises provides holistic services to women impacted by addiction, trauma or incarcaration to improve their health and well-being and provide opportunities for personal growth and empowerment.

In the decade between 2006 and 2016 the number of incarcerated women in Arkansas prisons

increased
by 70%

Arkansas’ overall recidivism rate is 56%.

That means over half the people released from prisons in our state, return in 3 years.

While an inmate in McPherson prison, Lindsey worked in Intake where prisoners are admitted and discharged. She would see women leave hopeful for their future only to return in a month or two.

“I started to believe deep down that once you come to prison, it’s impossible to stay out.”

In the last year, Hope Rises has served almost 200 women in our jail, prison, and residential programs.

Hope Rises offers a comprehensive gender-responsive program that provides women with the specific tools to reduce their likelihood of returning to prison.
