Big News for Major Gift Initiative For The ARK


Jan 20


We are so incredibly thankful for this tremendous gift from the Dorchester County Legislative Delegation. With these funds, The ARK is officially over halfway towards their goal of $600,000 Major Gift Initiative to owning The ARK House.

In attendance to the check presentation to share in the joy were our investors of the LLC, community partners, caregivers, donors, board members and staff. Thank you all for making this day perfect.

In April 2018, The ARK relocated to their first permanent location – The ARK House. Southern hospitality infuses the atmosphere; staff and volunteers greet caregivers and care receivers as friends. In the first four months at The ARK HOUSE, daily attendance and intakes from new respite care families increased by 33% increase. An EML program – The Navigation Club – began in May 2019. Half-day group social programs are held four days per week in Summerville (est. 1996) with transportation provided via the ARK bus since 2004

Please join us on this journey of The ARK owning “The ARK House”.
