ARK is a non-profit organization in Metro Halifax that specializes in helping
and caring for troubled youth. Through many different situations, children are
forced onto the streets to find shelter and to fend for themselves. ARK
believes in building relationships and communicating the love of Jesus in
work and deed. By giving these children a place to stay, where they can get
a meal, shower, clothing or merely the warmth and companionship of ARK's
dedicated staff, young children can be helped towards a new and brighter
However, this is not the full extent of what ARK offers to the homeless
community. They are also responsible for the 'Sunday Supper', which serves
hot meals to many of the Halifax homeless, as well as a variety of other tasks.
It is through a large volunteer network, dedicated staff, and MANY donations
that ARK remains an active source of support for those in need. While this
effort continues to grow, so too does the need for more public awareness,
civic generousity through donations, and a positive attitude to accept people
as they are.
Please look through the ARK web page to see what programs ARK offers, as well
as the ones that are up-and-coming, and to find out a little more about this
wonderful organization. You may also want to look at the list of ARK's
'current needs' to see if there is anything that you could donate to help
their cause. It is with these kinds of donations that ARK is able to improve
the quality of life for those less privileged.
