AKA “The Ark” or “Dorothy’s Place” or “The Youth Drop-in on Gottingen”
The ARK is a community shaped by those who are homeless and street involved.
The drop-in is a safe place, a place to call home, for street-involved and homeless youth.
We walk alongside youth while building relationships with them and supporting their efforts to access vital services in the community, such as legal advice, health care, addiction services, mental health support, education, employment, and housing options.
Art Space: There are many opportunities for artistic expression at Ark. Young people can spend time at Ark and be quiet and/or be expressive in their music, pottery, design, drawing, silk screening. Call Dorothy and Emily if you would like more details about the art space.
Computer Access: There are a few computers at Ark that young people can use to keep in touch with family and friends, search for jobs, search for apartments, work on school assignments, and so on.
Please call for more information about the availability and schedule of onsite resources.
Shared Care Mental Health: Provides one-on-one mental health support and referral to services.
MOSH hours: M – 11:00am-12:00pm/W – 5:00-6:30pm
