A safe place for single women and mothers with children.


“Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

AWAKEN, Arkansas’ Women & Kids Educational Nook, is the Little Rock Compassion Center’s shelter for single women and mothers with children. It is a 75-bed facility designed to meet the needs of women and children experiencing homelessness 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.

Coming here, women and children in crisis will awaken to a new life at the Nook.

  • A safe place for single women and mothers with children.
