21 Incarcerated Mothers, 41 Children, 31 Family Members
coming together for one day to Unify the Family!
Repairing lives and restoring families of Northwest Arkansas citizens who are imprisoned or who have been released.
Our goal is to increase access to the foundational needs of men and women coming from incarceration to Northwest Arkansas. Each of these items is key to a successful life but limited for those with a criminal record. We come alongside our clients to connect those in need to the services that will help them successfully transition back into society. Our focus is on stable housing, eliminating food insecurities, improving access to employment and increasing job retention, assisting in acquiring personal identification, increasing access to mental and physical wellness services, and reducing substance abuse dependencies.
Uniting with others in Christian love to meet the needs of imprisoned and returning men and women in Northwest Arkansas.
Improving the quality of life in Northwest Arkansas by helping break the cycle of the imprisonment.

The Reentry Workshop is a program led by local service providers to serve previously incarcerated men and women. The Workshop focuses on four main areas: Mental Health, Addiction, Financial Responsibility, and Professional Development. Our goal is to equip clients with the tools necessary to successfully reintegrate into NWA, as well as to prevent individuals from returning to jail or prison.

Real World Testimonial
I had reached my lowest point in November of 2015. I was doing things I would never have done before. I thought I had control over my addictions and could quit those bad habits at any time. I was homeless, using drugs, had felony charges plus a Failure to Appear.
The last straw was finding out I was pregnant. I wanted to get away from drugs and the lifestyle I had been living. I realized that I was in too deep and didn’t know how to get out of it all. I had given up too much due to my lifestyle. The first car that I completely paid for was gone. I lost friends and the trust of my family. Worst yet, I suffered a miscarriage and the custody of my two oldest daughters.
After being incarcerated four times, something had to change. The journey wasn’t easy or short. With the help, support, and love from numerous people and organizations, I now have so much.
My baby girl, Aaliyah, and I have a place to call home. I have a bigger and stronger support system, more independence and great self-confidence. I am beyond grateful and humbled at the help that has been offered and given.
Whether you want to donate time, resources or services, we'd love to hear from you. Returning Home relies on the support of our local community.
If you'd like to partner with us to help support our goal of repairing lives and restoring families, let us know what services or items you can provide and we will get in contact with you.
