"We're glad you're here!" Our mission is to provide a place of shelter and support where those in need will receive the compassion, guidance, information, and assistance that will allow them to fully express their highest potential.

The Day Center

Each year, Seven Hills provides services to over 1,000 men, women, and children in over 14,000 visits. We are the only facility in Northwest Arkansas that provides such a wide range of resources, referrals, and personal assistance, dedicated to helping individuals negotiate the difficult journey back to self-sufficiency. Whether recovering from an illness or injury, elderly, trying to keep a family safe until housing is available, disabled, or in need of job readiness training in order to return to a self-sufficient life, the day shelter, where many services are available in a safe, supportive environment, makes the vital difference between overcoming the tough times, and being overwhelmed by them.

Transitional Housing Program

The working homeless often remain homeless without a place where they can receive support in acquiring the skills, attitudes, and finances to allow a firm transition to independence.  Seven Hills strives to end the cycle of homelessness by providing three- to six-month residence, life-skills training, and personal life coaching, and mentoring for eight individuals eagerly working through that difficult transition.
