Bring hope to those who need it most

You can bring hope and a smile to those who need it most.

Goodness Village provides affordable housing for patients and their families who are seeking medical treatment in Little Rock for various life-threatening illnesses while providing compassionate care so they don’t feel alone during their stay. 

The love and care that Goodness Village volunteers give to the families we serve extend beyond the doors of their apartments and into their hearts. Volunteering with Goodness Village makes a significant impact on the life of a guest and their family who are facing a challenging and scary medical journey. 

Become an integral part of what makes Goodness Village a place of healing and hope for those undergoing medical care while in Little Rock.

Because of this ministry and amazing supporters, we truly had a home away from home and saw everyday people serving us as the hands and feet of Jesus!
