Providing Hope & Healing Through Recovery

The Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas’ Rehabilitation program offers men an opportunity to rebuild, recover, and refocus their lives. By making Christ the center of their lives and everyday decisions, individuals find a path
of hope and healing. After a six-month process men are prepared to reenter society free of alcohol and drug dependence.

“At the age of 19 I was a drug addict facing 15 years in prison but given the option to be part of Salvation Army Recovery Program. While in recovery I found God and hope for my life. There’s a different man here today and I love who I have become.”  — James, 2017 Graduate

A Happy Heart & Home

I am back on my feet now, February 2018” were the opening lines of a Valentine’s Day card we received at the Salvation Army offices just a few days before the holiday. Our hearts filled with joy seeing these words from a woman who spent time at the Salvation Army shelter during the summer of 2017. “I so appreciate your wonderful staff and ministry. You gave me shelter, food and encouragement when I was homeless for eight days in July. You were a God-send,” our guest shared.

It is moments like these that remind us of the why behind what we do. By providing a shelter bed, a warm meal, and encouragement to people in immediate need, we can be a resource and a place to where people discovery hope. This guest is just one of many during the past year who have been able to move from emergency shelter to a permanent home. During 2017, in Fayetteville alone, we were able to help 183 people find housing.

This Valentine’s Day as you sit down to enjoy an evening meal, we hope you will take a moment to think about and pray for people who might be waiting for a place to call home. Today our hearts are full as we continue to see the hope that our emergency shelters can provide.
