Women & Children's Shelter

AWAKEN, our new shelter for women and children is now open! We are so excited to now be able to open this 75-bed facility to meet the needs of women and kids experiencing homelessness right here in Little Rock.

This special place is much more than a shelter. It has been designed to be a warm and welcoming, home-like environment with a focus on recovery, family, life transformation, and hope renewed. God’s mercy has been evident at every level of this project, and we can’t wait to see what He does next.

Cary - Life Transformation

In the 8-Month Turn Around program, you’ll receive all the training of the 90-Day Journey, plus the training to make it stick. Most students need this extra time to turn their lives around and follow Christ.

Sometimes you just need a place to be safe and save money so you can get back on your feet.


Our Social Savings Program is designed for clients who receive monthly income, whether it be fixed or via a job they are working, and desire to learn to become better stewards of their God-given resources.

While they stay here, they will save 75% of their income, meet with their Case Manager weekly to work on budgeting, life skills, life goals and volunteer at LRCC a few hours per week.

A sack lunch is also provided for them to take to work each day.
