Welcome to Friendship Ark Homes!
We are a Christian community that provides homes in Ames for adults with intellectual disabilities. We invite you to explore our pages, finding all the ways to see God in our Core Members, our staff, our Board Members, and all who are part of the Friendship Ark Homes family.
- Retirement Announced
At the January Board meeting, I announced my plans to retire at the end of December, 2014. We have begun the search for a new Executive Director. It has been a wonderful journey these past 10 years and it’s time to let someone else lead Friendship Ark Homes. Please refer qualified candidates to this web site for additional information. Thank you for your prayers as I prepare for a new pathway in life.
