- ABOUT US -
The Gaines House is a non-profit transitional living residence for homeless women, 18 or older, who have been treated for a mental, physical, or emotional disability. We provide a supervised environment while they prepare for independent living. We provided shelter to twenty-nine women in 2009.
- MISSION STATEMENT -
The Mission of the Gaines House is to provide a safe and supportive transitional residence for homeless women with emotional, mental, or physical disabilities, and to help them achieve independence.
- HISTORY -
The Gaines House was established in 1967 through the combined efforts of the Little Rock Junior League, the Pulaski County Mental Health Association, Arkansas Rehabilitation Services and Altrusa International. The Gaines House is a large, 2-story brick house built in 1870 and is on the National Register of Historic Homes. Although there are no private bedrooms, the bedrooms are large and spacious enough to accommodate from 2 to 4 women. It is beautifully decorated and has a home like atmosphere.
