ARM’s Women’s Center could use a hand

(Continued)

ARM plans to have 25 people occupying the new women's center within the first couple of weeks, making the need for donations all the more pressing. Several area churches, namely St. Marks Lutheran Church, have already stepped up to begin collecting items for the center.

Oliver said in addition to all of the home goods they will need, ARM will also need to get school supplies for the children who come to live at the facility so that they can be put through school.

ARM will hold an open house on Saturday in celebration of the facility's grand opening beginning at 11 a.m. It's a great opportunity to drop off donations, see the newly renovated building, enjoy BBQ and enter the raffle for ARM's Model T Roadster.

Many prominent members of the community have given ARM and its facilities, especially the new women's unit, glowing reviews. Mineral Wells Mayor Mike Allen, Police Chief Dean Sullivan, Palo Pinto County Chief of Juvenile Probation Robert Kimbrell and County Community Supervision and Corrections Department Director James French are just a few of the prominent local officials who have publicly voiced their support.

"We believe that [the Women's Life Recovery Unit] would address a plethora of needs for the target population as well as those for a number of our own clientele," French said. "Our agency has worked with ARM since their inception. To state that ARM is a valued resource to our agency and an asset to our community would be a gross understatement."

"We need a resource that would refer families and women to the Women's Life Recovery Unit," Kimbrell said. "The recovery of our families and women should be our No. 1 concern, especially when working with our youth and the family unit."

Those interested in making donations should call ARM's office at 940-325-7499 or simply drop by with donations at 112 South Oak in Mineral Wells. For more information about ARM and the Women's Center, visit their website at www.addictionrecoveryministries.org.
