Options, Inc. has partnered with Arkansas Big Brothers Big Sisters Donation Center Clothes for Ca$h program. We will accept all textiles, purses, belts, and shoes. Please bring your donations to Options, Inc., on South Main St, between Cockrells and the Railroad tracks.
The purpose is to give faith based organizations, church members, and attendees an opportunity to financially support Options, Inc. in their effort to provide emergency shelter and supportive outreach services to victims in our community. And to give the community faith based organizations an opportunity to learn more about domestic violence and availability of assistance.
Please make a tax deductible gift to help Options, Inc. continue to provide assistance for individuals and their children who are in domestic violence situations.
If you are interested in volunteering to assist the agency care for this underserved population please come by or call. If you need assistance please come by or call.
Options, Inc. was started because a small number of individuals saw the need of Domestic Violence Victims and their Children. A survey was conducted through law enforcement and court systems in 1989 in the five counties of the 10th Judicial District. The survey was conducted by concerned citizens and professionals. The data was compiled and results were that one out of every four calls was regarding some type of domestic or family violence.
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Domestic Violence Awareness month is held every October to educate people about domestic violence, and to encourage victims and abusers to get help.
Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior used to gain control over a person by a partner, relative, or household member.
Abusers often make it difficult for victims to get help by blaming them, promising the abuse will stop, or making victims feel they cannot escape—either because they may suffer further abuse or due to financial constraints.
