LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - An area organization that helps working homeless people is adding a new facility to help children who are without a home.
Our House, located at 302 E. Roosevelt Rd. in Little Rock, announced Thursday it will develop a new children's center. The new center allows Our House to serve 142 children each day, nearly three times more than the organization's current capacity.
The center will cost $3.8 million; donations are being accepted through Our House's Room to Grow capital campaign.
Our House is a non-profit organization that provides working homeless people and families with housing, job training, education, and childcare. The purpose is to help them develop skills to be successful in their jobs, families, and communities. For more information on the program, visit Our House's website.
