ABOUT AT THE ARK
At The Ark was set up as a support website after it was disclosed that our children where sexually abused by a close family member. As a family, we felt that we were the only ones that were going through such a horrible situation and there was nobody who was able to offer us any help holistically. We soon began to realise there was a need in the community to support the families who are left with their emotions reeling and not knowing what to do next.
Our Helping Hands Program tackles this problem head on. Our trained volunteers support families from disclosure, assessing their needs and activating other organisations who can come along side them also. We will support the families through the whole journey until they decide they do not need our support.
Our FREE Speaking the Unspeakable Seminars are aimed to equip the church and other organisations to support families and to understand more about this tragedy. We believe the more we 'Speak about the unspeakable' we can conqueror the secret and bring freedom to victims and offenders.
Safe Ark Zone is a network of churches who take safeguarding our children seriously. It works hand in hand with the Speaking the Unspeakable seminars. At The Ark supports the churches as they support their families.
In 2010 we became a charity in Queensland Australia
