Get Involved

 

You can support Friendship Ark Homes and Community Services in many ways!

Students


Friendship Ark has a volunteer internship program. Earn college credit with your 500 hours of service and make an impact at the same time. You may find that you are as impacted as the organization and core members are.

  

Board

 

If you are interested in serving as a board member, let the office know. The board is not selected based on an application process but is chosen to complement the strengths to create as diverse a group as possible to add value to the organization.

 

Attend an Event


Attend one of the upcoming events. You can run in the 5K (held on July 4th each year), attend the annual fundraising event, or find an event where you can interact with the individuals served. You may also help plan an event by volunteering. 

 

 

Mark your calendar for Friday, September 8th, 2017.

 

Yes, it’s CyHawk eve and we will once again be gathering for our annual Fall Benefit. Plan to join us for a tailgate to support Friendship Ark to kick off game day weekend. Details to follow in our next newsletter as well as on the website and our Facebook page. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Volunteer

 

Homes and people both need volunteers. Is your area of passion gardening, home maintenance, race planning, coordinating needed items or something else? You can make a tangible difference by giving your time.

 

Become a fundraising ambassador

 

Do you have a passion for the mission of Friendship Ark Homes and Community Services and would like to help with the continuity of the organization long after all of our current volunteers are gone? If you have a passion for fundraising, we can plug you in to the right area to utilize your talents.

Social media guru?


Are you connected on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn? We have a job for you! You can connect with us and help us share stories and messages through social media channels. Sharing our impact through stories, photos and messages assists our communication efforts.

 

Donate


Friendship Ark is witnessing growing demand for both homes and community services at the same time that some funding sources are expected to decline. We encourage you to think about three ways you can support the meaningful work underway at Friendship Ark. (1) Donate to the construction of a new home, (2) Contribute to the endowment fund; or (3) Consider a deferred gift.
