We’re proud to welcome you to the newly expanded Ark in West Rogers Park and in Northbrook.

Building Our Future

You can still be a part of this transformative effort to invest in the future of The Ark, and our community.

Discover Our Future.

The Ark’s expanded and reimagined building in West Rogers Park is open! Each day, hundreds of members of our community come to The Ark’s new home to seek care and support on their journey toward self-reliance. Our community has invested more than $23 million through the Building Our Future Campaign, but we’re not done yet.

You can still be part of this transformative effort to care for those in need in the Chicagoland Jewish community for decades to come.

Powered by Community

The Ark’s Building Our Future Campaign funds not only this transformative renovation of The Ark’s West Rogers Park home, but also significant investments in The Ark’s endowment and in innovative new programs to meet the Jewish community’s emerging needs.

The Ark’s new building represents a 60% expansion of the original footprint of its facility in West Rogers Park; a four-fold increase in the size of The Ark’s food pantry; a relocated pharmacy to the first floor for easier access with the creation of a private consultation space; a community space now double the size; and a brand-new, dedicated space for its Intensive Day Program for adults with lifelong, chronic mental health challenges.
