With the support of our donors, sponsors, and our great team of volunteers, ARK is able to help change the lives of these young Calgarians and their families for the better.
Using our strong team of volunteers and sponsors, we can provide many types of renovations or modifications, such as:
building ramps outside the house,
installing stair lifts and hoists,
and renovating bathrooms to improve accessibility (just to name a few).
Our team has years of experience with making homes more accessible. We also have members with extensive renovation and nonprofit management experience.About our team
ARK receives nominations from a variety of sources for families that would benefit from an ARK renovation. We work endlessly to make sure that our renovations are suitable for the children that we work with, and that their parents are part of the decision making every step of the way.Learn more
We aim to complete one to two renovations a year with the generous support of our donors and sponsors.
Our most recent project was for 8 yr old Caleb, who was born with Polymicrogyria, a neurological disability. Caleb has limited mobility, having to rely on a wheelchair or 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
