Our Team

For the last two years, our team has been on an exciting journey to see how Hope Rises can best fill a massive gap in services for women transitioning back into our downtown Little Rock community. The Hope Rises team is comprised of public health practitioners, a social worker, a health and wellness physician, entrepreneurs, financial manager, and nurses.
