About Wolfe Street
Why is a place called Wolfe Street actually on Louisiana Street? What is it about Wolfe Street that brings so many people together?
The Wolfe Street Foundation began in 1982 as a safe haven for sobriety and a starting place for new lives. Originally located in an old funeral home and chapel on Wolfe Street, the Foundation hosted its world-famous founder - whose lectures built a legacy of life-changing work we continue today.
In 2007, the Wolfe Street Foundation moved to its current location: a 12,000 square red brick building in downtown Little Rock. Our Foundation is historic - but the fight against addiction isn't history! We continue to serve as a headquarters for people seeking and sustaining long-term recovery. Learn more about our history and how we continue building a robust community of recovery for the future!
Wolfe Street's story has all the makings of a blockbuster hit - big challenges, world-famous characters, small-town grit and gumption, and a life-changing mission that calls all of us to take action!
We stand on the shoulders of giants of the recovery movement. Many in our community remember "the old Wolfe Street" - previously located at 1215 Wolfe Street here in Little Rock.
The legacy of the Wolfe Street Foundation and its founders lives on at our current location - not far from the original site - at 1015 South Louisiana Street.
The original Wolfe Street Center had lived many lives - as a home, a funeral home, student nurse housing, and our first recovery community center.
Recovery takes a community, and the Wolfe Street family is made up of countless individuals. Together, we create life-changing impact across Central Arkansas.
