Breaking The Cycles of Youth Homelessness

Our Ark is a Thurston County, Washington community-based nonprofit corporation that works directly with homeless street youth and young adults, ages 13-25. We provide street outreach, mentorship, job, and life skills training, as well as self-esteem building through consistent, nonjudgmental support from volunteers, neighborhood groups, and other agencies and organizations.

Our primary goal is to break the cycles of homelessness for street youth and young adults through advocacy, training, and mentorship.

Our Ark is more than an organization, we’re a community on a journey together.

We are making great strides in our community helping street youth create their paths to success. YOU can help and be their champion! We'd like to find multiple volunteers to fill in for  street outreach, host homes, and food donors, including other positions as well. The farther we reach, the more success for the community to end homelessness in future generations.
