Union Rescue Mission Dorcas House
823 S. Park Street
Little Rock, AR - 72202
Outreach to women and children begin at Dorcas House. We provide emergency services like food, shelter, clothing and crisis intervention to more than 400 women and children annually.
Domestic Violence Program
We offer a nine-month Domestic Violence Recovery Program led by licensed therapists. The curriculum that we offer goes beyond educating women and children about the cycle of violence but rather addresses root problems through intensive group therapy. Our program encourages women and children to address deep-seeded pain and suffering like childhood sexual abuse, co-dependence and depression. We work cooperatively with law enforcement and court officials to promote the protection and safety of battered women and children. If you or someone you know needs help, then please call the national domestic violence hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE(7233); and she will be directed to the appropriate shelter or safe house.
Drug and Alcohol Recovery Program
We also offer a nine-month Drug and Alcohol Recovery Program which is also led by licensed therapists. For each of our programs the clients take classes based on individual needs. The classes offered are Domestic Violence Recovery, Christian 12-Steps, Parenting, Childhood Sexual Abuse Recovery, Anger Management and Coping Skills, Breaking Free (Beth Moore), and Workforce Preparedness. We seek to help women identify sinful patterns of behavior and turn to God for restoration and transformation. We also work with area Mental Health service providers because many of our clients have a dual diagnosis of addiction and mental illness. Although we are a nicotine and narcotic free program, we do understand the importance and necessity of psychotropic medications for many of our residents. Our goal is that they receive healing to the whole person: physically, mentally, emotionally and above all spiritually.
