Jaydon is a sweet, cuddly 5-year-old living with Cerebral Palsy. His parents have their hands full with him, toddler Mason, and twin brother Braydon, who lives with developmental delays and epilepsy. Please help us build an outdoor wheelchair ramp and an accessible bathroom for the family!Read Jaydon's Story
ARK saw the need for greater accessibility in the homes of children with mobility issues. An ARK accessibility renovation helps to change the lives of these young Calgarians, and their families, for the better.
Relying on the generosity of donors and our amazing volunteers and sponsors, we can provide many types of modifications or renovations. For example:
building ramps outside the house,
installing stair lifts and hoists,
and renovating bathrooms to improve accessibility (just to name a few).
Our volunteer team has years of experience in charity management and home accessibility renovations. We take pride in doing quality work and making the most of our resources.About our team
We receive nominations for families that would benefit from an ARK renovation from a variety of sources. We work hard to make sure that our renovations are suitable for the children and that their parents are part of the decision-making process every step of the way.Learn more
With the generous support of our donors and sponsors, ARK aims to complete one to two renovations a year.
Our most recent project was for 8 yr old Caleb, who was born with Polymicrogyria, a neurological disability. Caleb has limited mobility, relying on a wheelchair or being carried by his parents. Now that he is getting older and heavier, managing in a regular bathroom is quite difficult. ARK renovated the main floor bathroom to be fully accessible, making daily life so much easier for Caleb and his parents.View All Projects
