For 35 years Ark House, an all-volunteer organization, has provided temporary, low cost housing to thousands of seriously ill patients and their families who must come to Dallas to receive medical care. Ark House is a mission of the First United Methodist Church of Richardson (TX) operating as “Ark House”. (See Quick Facts PDF)

Thanks to the generosity of our donors and volunteers, we are able to offer fully furnished apartment rentals to individuals and their families who live more than 50 miles from Dallas, and must spend anywhere from 7-90 days undergoing treatment at some of our city’s world-class medical facilities.

Our goal is to provide a restful haven that has many of the comforts of home.

All requests for an Ark House apartment must be made through a social worker at the Dallas hospital where treatment is being received.

On our website, you will find information for:

  1. Patients and their families traveling to Dallas for extended medical care.
  2. Social workers and case managers referring patients.
  3. Donors and sponsors interested in helping further our mission.
  4. Volunteers wishing to join our cause.
