Part of the mission of Ark House is to offer “Shepherding” to our residents. Shepherds are volunteers who reach out to our residents by telephone to offer friendship and encouragement.

Within one week of arrival, residents should receive a phone call welcoming them to Ark House. The Shepard is a friend to talk to and residents should feel free to communicate with their Shepard to whatever extent is helpful to them.

If you have not received a phone call from Your Shepard, and would like someone to talk to, please call Resident Services and a volunteer will contact you.
