Our goal is to offer a "home-away-from-home" to patients and their families who would otherwise experience serious financial hardship due to the cost of temporary housing.
Fully furnished one bedroom apartments are available for patients living a minimum of fifty miles from Dallas. Apartments may be rented for seven to ninety days.
It is the hope of volunteers and Ark House contributors that by providing these basic needs, some of the burden will be eased while families must be away from home to receive treatment for serious medical illness.
Referral from a Dallas hospital social worker is required. Ark House apartments are not fully handicap accessible.
Ark House offers support to Ark House residents through our Shepherd program. A local volunteer "Shepherd" telephones each family to offer friendship and support throughout their stay.
To rent an Ark House apartment, ask to talk with the social worker at your Dallas hospital.
