Hope Cottages
of Harrison

A project to provide transitional housing for homeless mothers and their children in Harrison, Arkansas

"My children & I have no place to stay tonight. CAN YOU HELP US?"


"160+ children living in Boone County presently live without homes"

"yet Harrison presently lacks a homeless shelter for mothers"

(our community spends thousands as a whole each year putting homeless children and families into hotel rooms or housing that is not acceptable for children; in addition, Harrison has to routinely send its homeless women and children to other communities for shelter services)


We would love to spread the word. Please contact us if you would like us to make a presentation to your church or organization.

I never would have believed it could happen to me

Typical situation that leaves a woman homeless

 

Kelsey’s life turned upside-down at age 23 when her mother passed away. Her immediate family fell apart as she struggled through a period of depression. She is the primary breadwinner for her two daughters, but they were evicted from their apartment after getting behind on rent. She and her children stayed with her sister as a temporary fix. Together with the fact that she could not keep her job while at the same time caring for her children there actually was not enough room at her sister’s home she ended up on the street.

-  "Dear Children, let's not merely say that we love each other, let us show the truth by our actions." 1 John 3:18  -
