Why We Exist
Accessibility Renovations for Kids (ARK) is a Calgary based charity that serves families that have a child with a mobility challenge. These families face many adversities, which may include living in a home that is not suited to meet their specific needs. Simply put, many families cannot afford the costly renovations that would make the home accessible. At ARK, we believe that accessibility to the facilities in one’s own home is a basic human need. ARK plans and executes a wide range of home renovations on a case by case basis, so these children are empowered to safely and easily access spaces and resources in their own home. These renovations benefit the family on a daily basis by reducing the daily struggle faced by these children and their families and more importantly providing a sense of independence for children who have enough challenges in their day-to-day life..
