The Challenge

Got a big-hearted business, workplace, group, church, or community? Step up and join the Challenge to compete for your local pride in support of CNOY. Check the National Challengeboard to see more!

About ARK

In 1998, ARK opened its doors & became a home base for traveling and street-involved youth. We welcomed youth from across Canada for 25 years; the space became home to hundreds.


These days, we walk alongside families & individuals, advocating for social justice, building relationships that together allow us to provide outreach & support. All community members are respected, celebrated & encouraged to thrive. We offer:


- legal advice, health & dental care, addiction services, mental health support, education, employment, & housing options

- assistance accessing emergency shelter & finding long-term housing, providing support as new accommodations turn into homes, advocating for affordable housing

- mentorship opportunities & possibilities for groups to get involved

- support through the court system & correctional facilities


We are committed to networking with other outreach groups in our community including those that are both regional & national. Together we create a place to call home.
