Women’s Ministry

The Dorcas House shares the compassion of Christ with the women and children of Central Arkansas who are in the greatest need. We provide housing, classes, counseling, daily chapel time, and other services that help them begin to change their lives. Through a relationship with Jesus Christ, women trapped in domestic violence or struggling with chemical dependency or other addictions find the hope and support they have so desperately needed to break the shackles of their past and rebuild a new life.

Domestic Violence Program

We offer a 9-12-month Domestic Violence Recovery program. Our curriculum addresses not only the cycle of violence, but the root problems of domestic violence through intensive group therapy. Our program empowers women (and their children) to address long-term psychological traumas such as childhood sexual abuse, codependence, and depression. We will always work in cooperation 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 escaping from a domestic violence situation and need anonymous, confidential help, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).

Drug and Alcohol Recovery Program

We also offer a 9-12-month Drug and Alcohol Recovery Program for women dealing with chemical addiction. Our recovery programs target the needs of our clients. Some of the classes we provide are Domestic Violence Recovery, Christian 12-Steps, Parenting, Childhood Sexual Abuse Recovery, Anger Management and Coping Skills, Breaking Free (Beth Moore), and Workforce Preparedness.
Our courses and counseling help the women who have come to us to identify their sinful patterns of behavior so they can fully turn to God for restoration and transformation. We work with area mental health service providers to more holistically address the challenges our clients face, since many of them suffer from a dual diagnosis of addiction and mental illness. Our facilities are drug-free regarding nicotine and narcotics; however, we honor and understand the necessity of appropriate prescription medications for mental health purposes. Our goal, our desire, our prayer, and our efforts are all that the women who come to us find the holistic healing that they need so desperately—mentally, physically, emotionally, and above all, spiritually.
