ARK Wants to Reshape Their World

ARK saw the need for greater accessibility in the homes of children with mobility issues. An ARK Home 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,

Illustration of bathroom renovations

and renovating bathrooms to improve accessibility (just to name a few).

Experts in our field.

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
Jon Schiedel, our project director, hard at work.

Our approach

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.

Our approach to renovations is direct and always communicated to the families we work with.

Our projects

With the generous support of our donors and sponsors, ARK aims to complete one to two renovations a year.

We are thrilled to announce the (near) completion of our ARK Home Accessibility Renovation project for 5 year old Jaydon. Born with Cerebral Palsy, Jaydon makes his way around the house with a wheelchair or by scooting about on his bum. ARK Reshaped His World with an outdoor wheelchair ramp, an accessible bathroom and even a lift to help him get up and down the stairs (once it gets here!).

Check out our most recently completed project for Caleb. ARK renovated the main floor bathroom to be fully accessible, making daily life so much easier for Caleb and his parents.
