Souls Harbor in Northwest Arkansas was founded as a homeless shelter for men in need more than two decades ago, and it’s now become a refuge for long-term support.
The organization celebrated 30 years Thursday.
It held a special ceremony this morning at its location in Rogers.
Board members and staff gave tours and answered questions about the new substance abuse treatment clinic.
“We’ve got an amazing success rate. We’re at a 25 percent success rate; the national average is 11 to 12, so, almost double,” said Charlene Fields, Souls Harbor executive director. “Last year, we served 66 men; 18 of those successfully completed our program, which is huge.”
Fields said the facility is the only transitional home for men in Benton County and one of two in all of Northwest Arkansas.
