The ARK Project

Spearheaded by Coos Bay School District special programs director Lisa DeSalvio, the ARK Project is a goal-oriented resource center serving homeless youth, ages 0 through 22. We provide basic needs, as well as on-site access to a variety of services from community partners. The ARK Project helps youth establish educational, employment, and personal development goals while providing wrap-around case-management services to assist youth in attaining those goals.

The ARK Project’s mission is to offer every homeless child and youth the probability of success and the opportunity for a better life. We do this by providing resources for basic needs, removing barriers to education and employment, and fostering self-sufficiency in a collaborative and empowering environment.

Located at 755 S. 7th Street in the Harding Building on the Marshfield Campus, we are open Tuesday and Thursday from 2-5 PM or call us at our new number 541-267-3104 EXT: 7115 for any questions!
