Serving London Since 1984

The Ark Aid Street Mission was founded in 1984. Since then it has grown in its mandate to serve people who live on the margins of society.
The Ark, as it is popularly known, is a charity registered with the Canada Revenue Agency, supported by a wide variety of local people, churches and businesses.
The motivating factor of the Board, staff, volunteers and donors is to practically express Christian faith and love where they are needed most.

This “Safe Haven” video will give you a bit of a feel for what we’re about. Please take a moment – click – and watch it.

It doesn’t stop with a donation. The clothing and apparel need to be sorted and sized and much more. Could you volunteer to help with this?

Program activities largely depend on the availability of volunteers. If you would like to volunteer your skills, especially during afternoons or evenings, please contact us.

It is also good to be on the receiving end – able to sit down at a table and eat a good meal with others.
