Ark is a community shaped by those who are homeless and street-involved. We seek to support those who live with the realities of life without shelter in our country.
Together we create a place to call home.
About ARK (Halifax)
ARK's Drop-in is a place to call home for street-involved and homeless youth, ages 16-24. Like any home, the centre offers daily meals, showers, and laundry facilities. Along with these basics, youth find a place were they are valued, respected and encouraged to thrive. We walk alongside youth, building relationships and helping them access services in the community, such as legal advice, health care, addiction services, mental health support, education, employment, and housing options.
Homeless youth from across Canada have been part of our community at the drop-in over the past 20 years.
Sunday Supper is a weekly meal serving 200-250 of the homeless community: men and women, youth, and families with young children. The supper, established in 1985, operates with a large volunteer core. A foot clinic, clothing and footwear depot is set up each week.
ARK depends on donations from individuals, churches and community groups. We invite you to join our community of support.
