When someone turns to The Ark for support, we care for the whole person. Our extraordinary professionals get to know our clients deeply and partner with them to develop personalized plans to address their financial, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs.


This is how The Ark changes lives. 


And when one person’s future brightens, the ripple effects are undeniable. One individual helped onto the path to self-reliance impacts others, and together, we strengthen one another.


This is how The Ark transforms our entire community. 


But we cannot do this work alone. It is the generosity of our incredible community of donors that ensures The Ark will be here when members of our community turn to us in need. 


We recognize with gratitude the following donors of $1,800 or more to the 2024 Dinner-Less Dinner, as of February 26, 2024.

About the Dinner-Less Dinner

For more than 20 years, our community has treasured the Dinner-Less Dinner®. Our signature annual fundraiser raised more than $1 million last year to address our community’s most urgent needs—and because our Dinner is “Dinner-Less,” with no large in-person party, you can give knowing that 98 cents of every dollar goes directly to our critical programs and services.
