        • 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.
