Please support our efforts to help meet the overwhelming need we are facing at The Ark as a result of the combination of cold weather and very high utilities bills. I am sure that many of you have used the words “high bill” sometime in the last month. For you or I it may mean one less evening out but for our neighbors it brings fear, desperation and despair. You can hear it in their voices on the phone and in their faces when they come in. Most say “there is not way I can pay this bill!”. The Ark is trying to help those neighbors before they fall behind. Our seniors have been hit the hardest as they are living on a fixed income and can not afford their bills as well.
In addition to the increase in need, The Ark one if no the only outreach agency addressing this issue! Other agencies are reporting no funding this month or are out of funding, leaving The Ark as one of the only agencies addressing the need. In the 25 years we have been open, we have never had to utter the words…”we are out of funding.”

We want to thank everyone for coming out and celebrating with us the 25th Anniversary of The Ark. The banquet was a huge success, and we thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the familiar (and unfamiliar) faces Friday night. Our warmest regards to all those who attended and to those who wanted but were unable to attend. Our volunteers and faithful supporters are, without a doubt, the heart of The Ark. We would not be here without YOU! Here’s to 25 years, and all the years yet to come!!
Your Friends at The Ark United Ministry Outreach Center
