Holistically restoring families of abused children and families impacted by domestic and family violence through love and compassion, whilst actively impacting future generations by empowering them with skills for prevention and protection.
Achieving Restoration for Kids
Ark in Latin is 'Arca' and the meaning is box. In Genesis, the Hebrew word for Ark is 'tebah'. (Which is also found when talking about Moses's basket).
It a appears that the most robust interpretation would not be a descriptive term (like boat) but more of a functional word such as life preserver, restoration of life or rescuer.
At The Ark desires that families that come to ATA will feel that they have been given a little life preservation, which will help the families to see a hope in a situation that may feel hopeless.
