What we do

At present we are able to accommodate 90 residents, most are permanent, with a handful of temporary residents and a few just needing a place to find their feet for a few days. Each resident undergoes an entrance interview and is screened for suitability based on the criteria outlined below. The Ark has a strong network of similar organizations to refer those who cannot be accommodated. The Ark does not have the facilities to accommodate those who need 24 hour medical care, the terminally ill and the severely mentally ill or challenged. The Ark is exclusively for men and limited to those over 18 years of age. There is a strict code of conduct and discipline. Those who do not adhere to this, are advised to find alternative accommodation.
