Life-Changing Impact: The ARK in 2021

Over the past year, The ARK’s staff and volunteers supported over 4,000 clients, including 500 new clients who came to us during a time of growing community need.

The ARK provided more than $1 million in financial assistance and fed 2,000 households. The ARK was there to provide dedicated and compassionate case management and to ensure that 500 community members received free medical care, medication, and many other valued services. The ARK was there to meet the needs of Jewish families, 1 in 5 who are struggling financially according to the 2020 Metropolitan Chicago Jewish Population Study.

The ARK is proud to be there for the Chicagoland Jewish community in 2021, for 50 years and those to come.
