ARK is a charity in Calgary which provides ARK Home Accessibility Renovations
for qualifying ARK Kids. 100% volunteer driven, our ARKies are working towards
a community where no child has to struggle unduly with accessibility in their own
ARK Kids are children and youths aged 0-25 who live with mobility issues,
whose parents/guardians own their home and have a financial need in order to
complete accessibility modifications. Anyone can nominate our next ARK Kid by
filling out a simple form at https://www.arksociety.ca/nominate/.
Our most common ARK renovations include exterior ramps and barrier free bathrooms.
However, we have also improved exterior pathways, as well as installing platform
and stair lifts.
Each renovation begins with a thorough consultation with the family to assess their
needs and our ability to improve their living conditions. Working with designers and
tradespeople, we solicit donations of time, materials and expertise to provide a
high-quality and professional result.
We have been working in Calgary for nearly 6 years, and the ARK community has
been growing quickly. Our partnership with SHIFT Accessibility Ltd provides us with
a reliable contracting company that shares our focus on accessibility and our passion
for helping those challenged with mobility issues.
ARK is also working to create a broader community for these families by offering
information and resources such as our free Speaker Series featuring experts on
various accessibility related topics.
Come visit us and see how, together, we can Reshape Their World!
