The nominal rental fee collected by Ark House covers slightly less than half of the cost of maintaining an apartment. An important part of the organization's work is raising money to meet the remaining operational costs.

Ark House is an entirely volunteer organization with no paid staff; a twenty member board of directors manages all aspects of Ark House. All funds received are applied to operating expenses.

Ark House is a non-profit organization and all contributions are tax deductible under current IRS rulings.


Donations from individuals, philanthropic organizations, foundation awards, fundraising events and corporate gifts help continue the work of Ark House.
