Our House maintains an emergency shelter and transitional housing for up to 110 people each day. Our Children's Programs include a licensed child development center for homeless children in Arkansas, as well as out of school-time programs: after school, summer, spring break, and more. State-licensed adult education instructors teach in the Career Center. Reentry services, job training, financial literacy and other programs are available for all residents. Families stay connected to Our House for a year after moving out through the Central Arkansas Family Stability Institute, our homeless-prevention case management program. We serve over 2,000 men, women and children each year. Of those, at least 75% move out of homelessness.
