About ARK

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 future.

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.
