The Ark of Refuge is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit which focuses on relief for transient communities specifically targeting (TAY) Transitional Aged Youth in the Greater Bay Area. For the year 2020 , Thanksgiving distributions totaled over $5,000.00. We were able to successfully distribute 120 meals to encampments. For Christmas, The Ark of Refuge provided gifts and cooked an eight-course meal for three families consisting of five children each.
The everyday power struggles between law enforcement entities and the hidden population of independent teens,otherwise known as TAY, breed youth to be distrustful of programs provided by the government.The ARK of Refuge Leaves No Person Uncounted by indirectly re-building that trust through providing services funded by governmental grants and private donations.
