Volunteers are always welcome to support our respite program by sharing their many interests and talents.

Our volunteers:

  • Share a special talent like singing, dancing, exercise, etc.

Our respite program volunteers receive thorough and ongoing training. All necessary training is provided.

Event Volunteers

Event volunteers may participate in a planning committee for events such as Dancing with The ARK’s Stars, Race for The ARK, Ugly Sweater Dash or other special events. We welcome help with mailings; soliciting in-kind donations, supplies, gift cards and silent auction items; and flyer/poster distribution.

Volunteers are needed the day of the event to help with set up, registration, monitoring stations at the race, food preparation, silent auction support, take down, and more.

Other Needs

After residing at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church for over 22 years, The ARK of SC has moved into its beautiful, expanded, dedicated home. The newly named ARK house has some history to it as well. Since 1940, it was the former home of Mayor Berlin G. Myers. The house sits on an acre lot, with a beautiful landscaped yard and backyard is landscaped for entertaining.

We have multiple volunteer opportunities to help maintain the property and yard a peaceful place for our participants to enjoy!
