We Minister to Women in Prison in Northwest Arkansas


Each and every life matters to God, no matter how far away. Founded in 2011, Ladies of Grace cares for women who are incarcerated by teaching [and encouraging] them to rely on God’s love, grace, forgiveness, and restoration. This care is provided by volunteers who teach weekly bible studies and practical applications of life skills needed for reentry into the community.



There are more women incarcerated now than ever in American history. The majority of women that Ladies of Grace serves, incarcerated in NWA, are caucasian moms. Many of these are also grandmothers, all struggling with deep pain and shame.

When Mom goes to prison and becomes separated from her children, 37% of the kids are in the care of their fathers, nearly 50% are cared for by grandparents while the remaining are taken in by extended relatives or placed in the foster care system. During this time of separation and rehabilitation, Ladies of Grace walks beside women, encouraging them with the love and forgiveness that can only come from Christ.

“Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.” Psalm 34:5


Did you know?

The national recidivism rate (relapse) is about 68%. This means, after 5 years, 68% of released women will return to jail.

For the women we serve in Northwest Arkansas, that number is significantly lower. Ladies of Grace partners with other organizations to make a difference in the lives of women rejoining our communities. Most do not return to jail or prison.

You Can Help

Each time a woman leaves prison, she’s left to start over on her own. A lot of women lack the basic essentials, such as shampoo, deodorant, and toothpaste.
