Hope Rises operates an 8-bed Reentry Facility in Little Rock, Arkansas. The residents in our program are selected by the Arkansas Community Corrections. We believe that treatment, in both the pre-release and post-release time frame, is critical in the reduction of recidivism and should include supportive services and monitoring. Our program is designed to guide women through numerous obstacles and empower them to take action on their own behalf to meet their physical, spiritual and emotional needs. This empowerment process allows them to move forward to the future and remove the stigma of their past identities. Our team and partners provide the necessary tools, direction, structure, guidance, and support so that every woman that participates in our program is given the opportunity to succeed.

We are fortunate to have partnered with two organizations, Literacy Action of Central Arkansas and Magdalene Coming Home in order to create a comprehensive program. Our goal is to help an additional 60-70 women each year successfully transition back into their community.
