The ARK accepts single women, married couples with or without children, and single parent (male or female) families with children. We can accommodate 25 people per night. We have three bedrooms designated for single women and four bedrooms designated for families.
Our goal is to model a healthy family lifestyle: therefore, we have a structured environment that promotes personal responsibility, respect, and cooperation among guests.
Each guest receives intensive case management from our staff to assist them in finding and maintaining employment and accessing community resources that will help them return to self-sufficiency and permanent housing as soon as possible. ARK staff is on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Guests work together to prepare meals and keep the house neat and clean.
Guests can remain at The ARK as long as weekly progress is being made toward their personal goals, with the average length of stay 20-24 weeks.
The ARK provides shelter and supportive services to homeless families and single women who are not victims of domestic violence.
